Collaboration Pots Bust my Bubble

Just when I needed a boost in morale, I opened my bisque kiln to find that two of the collaborative pieces that Phillip Pollet and I created busted. The largest was the first boom I heard, the loudest, as its bottom was totally in pieces. Another one blew out a small chunk on the bottom and developed a crack. At least one survived. Let's hope it survives the wood firing.

I'm thinking that the two pieces that blew up didn't dry out completely on the bottom. I wasn't able to turn them upside down and they just didn't get a chance to dry out. I should have soaked them overnight, but I was pressed for time.
