I woke up late and went to the studio to finish the tall piece. I wanted to do an inlay on the surface like a pencil hatching pattern with iron oxide. I guess the slip was too wet and pulled the one side away from the other half. I vacuumed the floor for just a few minutes and by the time I returned to the bench it developed a big crack running the two-thirds of the piece like a big scar. I should have known this would happen. I am not sure if I will remake this.
