...for such a pretty birbdath
What's dunting? It's a crack that occurs as a piece cools after firing. Some clay bodies and construction methods are prone to dunting. You can tell the piece cracked on the way down because the crack goes right through the glaze. If the piece cracked on the way up, glaze would've filled the crack. It's a hairline crack... you can hardly see it. I'm going to seal the crack from the back with silicone sealant so the birdbath will be water-tight. But still, it's a bummer.
