Repairing an ancient clay pot
Hi all you clay enthusiasts,
I know this is a little off topic, but I'm having a terrible time getting a lead on this, and I'm hoping one of you can point me in the right direction...
We brought home a clay pot that is probably 500 years old or more--the kind they used to store food in, with a layer of lard on top (yum!). It's pretty big (waist-high), and appears to be made out of clay, and "painted" with some kind of calcium "paint."
The neck broke off in transit, and we're bummed (this was a honeymoon purchase).
Do any of you know how to "glue" clay parts together? Any comments or leads are welcome!
