Another Dazzling Art in a Box Piece

Believe it or not I had to fire this piece 3 times(in addition to the bisque firing) to get it to work. The darn rocket kept popping off during the glaze firing. Eventually I ended up using nichrome wire to hold it in place which also ended up looking rather nice. Just another example of mistakes(or mishaps) working out in the end.

looks like it was worth the triple firing!
