Pottery Fail

Looks pretty, right? (Not perfect, but nice enough.)
It leaks. (I put some water in the bottom to test.) I'm not 100% sure if it's due to the cracks not being 100% sealed by glaze, or because the glaze crackled. I think it's the second, because it's a slow leak.

I'm sad. I was going to give it to my grandma as a present. I can't give her a flower pot that leaks.

I'm going to put some rubber feet on the bottom, and see if that changes things. *sigh*

I have a second pot (for growing window lettuce) glazed and awaiting firing, so I'll see how that goes. If that one *doesn't* leak, I'll try making another pot for my grandma.
