remember that the bowls are like 'Tom's shoes' one for them - one for you, thus it would be great if you make at least two soft slab bowls.

If you are done with your bowls then you need to start on the firm slab.

Glaze is out - remember if you get a project you need to grade it asap!!!
 
you need to write a paragraph about it and then show it to me RIGHT AWAY!
 
check out the glazes as they come out.

I will run a glaze kiln tonight

A bisque kiln will run on Friday - you'll get those after break and then you can glaze them. All first projects should be glazed no later than the first week after break.

All advanced soup bowls and tall projects should be finished and blogged about also that first week after break.

 
If you have something for the bisque kiln let's put it back there now!

Soft slabs on Monday - that will be our chance to make a bowl for the Empty Bowl project as well as a project for ourselves.

Glazing demo on Tuesday. 

The fun continues!
 
NOTICE TO ADVANCED STUDENTS -

Let's talk about the class expectations a little bit more.

what do I do if I've finished the pinch pot?

let's look in the FAQs
 
At ten mins before the bell I will:

Wash my tools in the bucket in the sink with a sponge and put them back with their kind - in the right place clean.

Adv. - I will clean my tools at my wheel. I will not let the ring fill with water. Then I will clean the ring in the large bucket, next my throwing bucket. I will not stack it when I put it away, or it will stick - suction! I will not foot before I have cleaned my batt and put it away. I will wash the sides of the wheel and the one beside me that I may have splashed. I will make sure the floor around me is clean. I will note what I did today so I can blog about it. A quick picture is good. Then, and only then will I wash myself.

New(bies) keep in mind that the same procedures go for you. 

Tools, area, floor and finally self.

NO ONE should stand by the door
