Default I cracked my bowl today...

Yep, I wanted to cry, accidentally knocked it off the counter today when I was getting everything together to make a bowl...

Knocked a big chunk off of the lip, though I suppose its ok, it still works, I just have a dip in the foil now :/

Lucky for me I ordered a vortex bowl the other night.

Anyone have any advice on a quick fix til my new bowl comes in?

Thanks alot,
J.D. Diamond

Eh. I wouldn't worry about it. A few days isn't a long time to wait.

yah there's really nothing you can do to fix it... just try to put the foil tight so that it can seal in the air... i have a whole bunch of bowls that i stocked up on just in case a situation like that would happen to me, i got a stash of about 4 egyptians, 3 vortex, and a few others. gotta always be prepared! LOL

Thanks everyone,

Yeah I need to stock up on some bowls. I've only had my hookah since December, finally got around to ordering some new hoses and a vortex bowl, got lucky and found 2 cobra hoses pretty cheap, so I'm waiting on all of that to come in.

So I've always wondered, is there a difference between the funnel bowl and the vortex bowl? From the descriptions they sound pretty similar.

Broke two Vortex bowls in a day...was not happy about this but thankfully my local tobacco shop sold them. 15 minute bus ride and all was taken care of but its never the less a crappy feeling.

I broke a few bowls, I hate it if its a full bowl. I knocked over a bowl once, with unsmoked shisha.

the only proper way to fix it would be to make some slip (water and clay compound) and use it to kind of glue your bowl back to gether, then refire it. it wont hold that well because its already spend peices, but it may or maynot work enough to use carefully.

Would that work? I'm just wondering about what refiring the bowl would do to the glaze that is on the bowl already but I don't know I haven't done anything major with clay since High School but since the bowl is already broken it can't hurt to try.

Well the bowl wasn't shattered, I smoked a few bowls with it after, just a chunk of it got knocked off the lip.

Though I do wonder if refiring it would work on a broken bowl.

it depends largly on the glaze, it most cases teh glaze will probly be messed up, some cases it wont be. if it does get messed up it can always be reglazed. in anycase its not really worth the trouble if you already have another bowl coming.
