Help with Ceramic Repairs?

Dear ArtsEdNet,

I was wondering if anyone has a suggestion for repairing glazed ceramic
ware? I made a very large tea pot. At two and a half gallons, it was so
large I decided it needed a faucet instead of a spout, and I installed
three stout legs. It has been in use and on display in my home for about
two years, until the other day when one of my 13 year olds accidentally
broke one leg. I am heart broken. I've saved all the pieces, which all have
crisp edges. Does anyone know what kind of glue or epoxy I could use to
permanently repair it?
