I have purchased many items from Just Art Pottery over the years, some very high-end pieces. And never have I been disappointed. But when I took this pedestal and jardinière out of their well-packed boxes, I was crestfallen. Although the pictures suggested that there might be problems with the glaze overall, I relied on your description, which has always been accurate in the past. But rather than curdled or mottled, the glazing looks inconsistent and downright ugly to me, as if there was some sort of problem in firing. I had a prominent place selected, one in which to display this as a showpiece, but now I intend to put it in a corner next to a door that will partially obscure it when open.
