Into the kiln she went
I'm glad I got these shots of how she was placed, because I think that contributed to the crack, at a thinner spot in the construction which was very close to the heat. Just my thought at this time, anyway. I reinforced the entire base of the mask where it meets the wall, but that part of the jaw was a bit heavier on the other side than on this one.
And here she is in all her glory, imperfect as it is.
You can see the crack running almost through the whole jaw, from the right side of the mouth to the base of the mask. There's a thin piece of glaze still holding it together, but it goes through to the inside all the way through the wall.
