RE: best glue for broken pottery

Being a potter and having had to glue pottery parts together for a
sculpture, I find Araldite (24hour) fantastic. It's a two part glue that is
available in hardware stores in Australia. Don't know about the USA but I
gather you've got plenty of alternatives.

Okay I'm turning this question over to you great people. I have
wondered for a long time now what other art teachers use for gluing
broken pottery back together for their students and I finally have a way
of finding out! (What a great list this is.) I have tried hot glue,
gorilla glue(yeah it's really called that), elmer's glue, and super
glue. Am I missing something? I've heard that Zap works but haven't
tried it. Needless to say, I am all "glued" out.
