Weekly Studio Update for October 29, 2018  -   Week 8;  Week 7 for Tues AM, Wed AM; Week  6 for Tues PM

Happenings
Last Chance to participate: Made In Clay
Made In Clay is GHP's Annual Holiday Sale in which all GHP students, staff and faculty are invited to sell their ceramic work. This year's Made In Clay Sale will take place on Saturday, December 1. For more MIC details and to sign up, stop by the liaison office to pick up information and fill out a W-9, no later than Friday, November 2.

Donate Your Unused Tools
GHP community member Shirley Wilmers will be traveling to Cuba on November 10th for an art and craft tour sponsored by Peter’s Valley School of Craft. She is taking along much needed pottery tools to give to ceramic artists there. Now would be a great time for GHP members to take a look in their tools boxes and donate seldom used or duplicate pottery tools. The need in Cuba is great and your spare tools will be very much appreciated.
Tools can be left in the GHP office from now until November 8th.

Studio Reminders
It’s Always Busy in the Kiln Room
With Made In Clay and the holidays just around the corner, please be advised that the kiln room is very busy. It is important to allow enough time for firing. Allow a minimum of two weeks for each firing when calculating firing time for a deadline. Please note that this is only a guideline and that kiln issues and work volume can shorten or lengthen that timeline.

Measuring Up!
This time of year gets really busy at the measuring stations. You can help make measuring faster by:
•  Having your work at the measuring station before the liaison arrives.
•  Filling out your firing slip completely; being nearby in the studio with payment ready.
•  Paying for both your bisque and glaze firing at the same time so that you only need to measure once.
•  And finally, keep your credit log balance full to help speed things along.

Studio Equipment is Communal
Keep in mind that this is a shared studio space and all communal molds, tools, etc. should be kept in shared spaces and should not stay on individual shelves overnight.

  • At this busy time in the school year, remember that this is a community studio and the shelves get really crowded; please review the studio policy on personal item storage.
  • Class shelves should only be used for storing work in progress.
  • Overflow shelves are to be shared by all students.
  • Items like porcelain, terra sig, mason stains and tools should be stored in your locker.
  • Store all your personal items in your locker and put your studio clothes and shoes in the designated space in the basement.
  • Do not store any items on top of or under lockers or elsewhere in the studio, except for your locker.
  • If you have too many items, edit what you store at the studio; bring in only what you need for the day.
  • Bring home finished work.
Please take a moment as a class for a little cleaning: evaluate works in progress and make sure you are not storing long-forgotten pieces that should be reclaimed.

 From the Registration Office: Register NOW We Are Not Joking
Registration opened on August 23rd for all classes for the fall, winter and spring terms. Please register now to secure your seat.

Worried about a drip? Need a bit of protection on your fragile piece?

End of Summer Glaze Grace Period

If you are 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.

Glaze Area
The glaze area is shared by all students and can get very busy at times. The glaze area has specific open studio hours. When classes are taking place, there is no glaze area access for open studio students. And at all times, please be considerate of others when working in the space.

A Clean Community Studio Is A Happy Community Studio
Clay dust is a health hazard. Make cleaning-as-you-go an essential part of your clay practice. It is very important that you use proper clean up techniques and avoid creating dust. Studio community cleanup reminders have been updated in each studio. We ask that all studio members do their part to leave the studio cleaner than you found it.

Each class has a list of cleanup tasks provided with the class roster. Please sign up for a cleaning task; since everyone has a task it becomes a routine. Whether or not students stay for open studio or have to cut out of class early, the last 15 minutes of your work time should be for community cleanup.

Safety and Courtesy Reminders
• For your safety, we require everyone in the pottery to wear footwear while on premises.
• Dry Sanding is not permitted in the studios; use the spray booth for any dry sanding.
• X-ACTO KNIVES or removable blades are not allowed.
• No cell phones–set your phone to vibrate and take you calls outside the pottery (not in the garden!)
