This is the first pot melt that I've turned into a finished product. The initial pot melt was misshapen and not as big as I wanted, so I took my ring saw and cut it down into a circle. I debated making this into a cone bowl and ultimately decided to slump it into my wavy mold. It shows off its polished edge very nicely! Enjoy!

This is bloody fantastic!  You must make more.  I have tried pot melts and had little success.  Good for you!
