I'm Overdue!

I haven't sacrificed anything to the kiln gods lately... I'm overdue. This week I came real close. This bisque fired pot is looking good so far until you look closer at the bottom. A crack runs almost completely around the base. The bottom doesn't seem any thicker than any of my other pots so I can't figure out why. I am tempted to totally chuck it but the inside is solid looking without any cracks. Maybe if  I  glaze it pushing a little extra glaze in the crack  it will fuse the bottom in place.  The crack will still be visible but I can add it to my defective but useful pot collection. If not, that will be one for the kiln gods. Even the electric kilns have them you know.
