Studio Reminders
LAST CHANCE: Summer Glaze Grace Period ends Sunday September 23rd
If you were in a summer class there is a grace period from September 12th through September 23rd to finish glazing any work from summer term. All bisqueware left at the Pottery at the end of summer term must be glazed or taken home at the end of this grace period or it will be discarded, regardless of enrollment status. Now is the time to get work quickly through the glaze kilns.

Class Chips
Class chips are located to the kiln room in front of the 06 Bisque shelves. Always place a class chip in your greenware in order for your piece to land on your class bisque shelf. Bisqueware that does not have a class chip will be unloaded on to the “unlabeled bisque” shelves (the lowest shelves on the right side of the wheelroom). This work will be dated and subject to discard if unclaimed for one month.

Where’s My Glazed Piece?
Glazeware will be unloaded onto the glaze shelf in the wheelroom just to the right of the kilnroom door near the kick wheels. With each kiln that is unloaded, work is moved onto the shelf in the hallway across from the liaison office. Once moved to the hallway, glazeware will be marked with a sticker, this work will be subject to donation or discard after 4 weeks; please claim your work in a timely fashion.
