Pottery Mugs

Fixing a crack in a pottery mug?

My favourite mug is this handmade pottery mug, and over the past few days I've noticed a hairline crack in the side that stretches about 5-6 cm up the side of the mug. I didn't think much of it until this morning I noticed beads of tea leaking out slowly.

Does anyone know if there is some sort of glue I could used to fill it, and how I would go about doing that? I'd really like to save my favourite mug!!

Thanks

Once a crack starts, it tends to keep on going. Heat from your tea causes a small thermal shock and the crack will worsen with every use. My mother used to put a metal spoon in her cup before she poured the boiling water into the cup. She told me it was to help absorb the heat - whether or not that's true I couldn't tell you! lol
To repair the crack in your mug, most of the online resources say to use super glue. Personally, I would take the mug to a potter and ask them to duplicate it as best they can. It really wouldn't cost much and, who knows, you may be able to get a whole set of favorite mugs!
email me if you are having a hard time finding a potter.
