Broken earthenware- not on a food surface.

Hi all,

I have 2 ceramic pieces that broke in a move.

One is an earthenware pot with a handle. It's that special ceramic from Europe that can also be used on the stove. The handle part broke off from the body of the pot. Yes, I can still use the body of the pot as a casserole but I like having the handle.

Item #2 is a ceramic bread warmer. This is is a round terracotta disc. You warm it in the oven and then put it in your bread basket under a napkin. It's got a crack right down the middle. This one doesn't technically touch food either.

Are there any epoxies strong enough to endure the high heat of a stove top/oven? I have already consulted the board and found this post:

        Thanks GirlyQ. The post about bad burns due to a dropped, previously-glued casserole dish scare me.
