Hi Clay Corner Artists!
An informational note from your new Shelf Monitors.
(Also known, affectionately I hope, as the Shelf Police)
We will be going through the shelves, both drying and fired shelves, approximately every 10 days. We have such an active, thriving Club, we need to keep things coming and going to make space for all the new creations produced by all of you. Items on the drying shelves are ok for about 30 days. Please adjust the date on your pink slips for larger pieces, then we know you are checking them for dryness. If the pink slips could be placed on the front edge of the board, or attached to the plastic covering, then we won't have to disturb your pieces while we are checking the dates. Thanks!
The kiln shelf, in the back room, is so much smaller, so we ask you to take your pieces home after 10 days. Please glaze them or take them home if you don't have time to glaze right away. Items past 10 days will be moved to the top shelf above the yard art, or the wheel room. After 10 days, those items will become a donation to the Club. The Kiln team thanks you too, as it is hard for them to find places to set fired pieces
Where There's Clay, There's Fun!
EARTH - AIR - WATER & FIRE - these are the ingredients of pottery and human beings alike. Each also contains an element of CHANCE. Do not seek perfection in pottery or people for your search will go unrewarded and you will miss out on knowing good pottery and many good people. ...Unknown
