How do I glue glazed ceramic to ceramic?
I have a ceramic bird feeder that I want to glue to a glazed ceramic stool. The bottom of the feeder is not glazed. Will gorilla glue work or something like that? It will need to be waterproof as it will be out in the garden.

I think your design will look lovely outside!
I'm sure using E6000 glue will hold outdoors BUT - I would suggest that you rub some chalk or something over the bottom of the bird feeder, setting it on the stool and twisting it a bit before you try gluing anything. This should leave some marks where both pieces touch.
Neither piece looks as though they have perfectly flat surfaces. You need to be sure there is enough surface area touching that the amount of glue used is sufficient to hold not only the weight of the bird feeder but also keeping it all in place while moving, cleaning, sitting on the uneven ground along with wind and weather.
If you think there isn't enough surface area of both pieces touching, you'll have to rethink what you will do. You could consider things such as taking a flat square of wood, sealing it for outdoors, and then gluing that square onto the stool. Allow it to dry thoroughly and then glue the bird feeder on top of the flat square. Doing this will give you lots more surface area to apply glue.
E6000 just like Robyn said!!
E6000 is my choice too!
E 6000 a industrial grade clear glue or or a exterior construction adhesive might be considered.
There are construction glues in caulking tubes that are water proof and stronger than e-6000. E-6000 is good for small tasks but you will probably need something strong to hold these two shiny surfaces to stay in place. Ask at the paint counter for a tough one for outdoors.
I also would look into the industrial strength / construction caulking for wet jobs such as bathrooms etc.
I love E6000 glue. Forget E6000 for this. Won't hold. Gorilla glue also will fail. You need to use a two part epoxy.
Here's a "best glue for ceramics" article that might help you:
Here are 10 glues that will do the trick: https://www.ceramices.com/best-glue-for-ceramic-repair/
Construction Glues, like Liquid Nails, come in different formulas- so you'll be able to get an exterior grade.
any type heavy duty glue that says glass or ceramic will work
I would try E-6000. The key to making it stay forever (or nearly forever) is to apply the glue to both pieces! After applying the glue to both piece, wwait several minutes before connecting the two surfaces together. Place something heavy on the top piece to insure you get a good bond. Let dry for 24 hours before moving.
I would be trying some masonry anchors. I dont think glue will hold
I would use Marine Glue, it is waterproof and would work well with your project
I would go with a two part epoxy. Use gloves and a mask, but it will hold and hold up the weather.
Epoxy is an option
I agree with epoxy
there are two ways .. either epoxy or e6000
I'd go with epoxy.
Hi Nancy, hope this helps you out,
Yup, another vote for epoxy.
