Default stupid mistake

I wasn't paying attention to what i am doing and i put ice in the base first and it put a hairline crack across the bottom of my base that causes a water leak tried duck tape but it didnt stop it. good thing i have an extra base laying around. any ideas to try to fix the old one before i throw it out? thank you

two layers of gorrilla may do it - to one, let it dry, then another using small cross strokes.

the creative option is just to set your vase in a dish of water as you smoke - that will seal it

yea, gorilla glue usually worse, but be sure to use it like your sealing the crack, not filling it in, because gorilla glue expands and this could either make it worse, or completely seal it

gorilla glue would do the trick but I would stick w/the backup vase until replacement is found. A cracked vase is just an accident waiting to happen.And when it does,hopefully all you'll need is a mop and not stitches.

If it is a stress fracture, there is nothing you can do about it. Sealing it to keep it from leaking will only do so much, it's more then likely going to continue to spread. I've lost two MZ vases to this. I just kept sealing them until they just fell out.

just get silicone glue and or UV glue, both will seal it well. the best way to fix it would be to re-anneal it (impossible unless you have access to a glass studio) drill small holes at the end of the crack and then glue/fill it. uv/silicone glue would be fine to work

as to it cracking, the glass had issues if a piece of ice caused it to crack, glass should take much more of a thermal shock than that 45-50 * down

The same thing happened to my clay bowl a few months back, surprisingly the small crack is still there but it's still going strong with no problems. I'd fill the base up only with room temperature water, and be careful about the temperature of the water you use while cleaning it also, after you put some glue on it if that's what you decide to do.
