Whoa, this has never happened before...

I remember years ago visiting a potter who had these 2 items fused together (by accident) sitting there….it was like a farm stand sort of place: a sign instructed you that if nobody was around, take your pottery purchase, leave the money…stuffed into one of the fused pots.

I should have double checked (ALWAYS double check everything in life, right?) when I was putting the shelf atop the lowest level in the kiln and I thought I heard a small thump.  Now I know what that small thump was, a mug shifted somehow, and because it ended up touching a pot on each side, well, now they are conjoined triplets.

I do not consider these a wonderful joke or souvenir and will not be saving them.

Supported on a slant, and with holes drilled into the bottoms for drainage, I think it would make a very cute herb garden...

Or lying on its side, a good display for some of your little woodland critters to peek out of. Or Christmas ornaments inside of them for a craft display, this season.

I'm hoping you kept them.
