Sheesh, the kiln did not fire fully last night - not enough time... I am re-firing it now so it will be out tomorrow. You can get any final projects graded on the last day we meet. So not a huge problem. 

Everything needs to go in the cupboards at this point and off of all surfaces. Everyone needs to work on that.

Pd. four needs to move all the wheels to the right side (by lockers). Period five needs to wash the floor on the left side. Next time we will do the opposite.

We also need the glaze room cleaned and all surfaces cleaned and glazes put away.

fun, fun, fun!

Period three we have a few more presentations! 
 
Last chance to grade. All Packets in.

We will do the outstanding presentations on either Tuesday or during the period scheduled for finals.

Lockers cleaned out today. We will clean them all tomorrow.

floors washed Tomorrow afternoon.

If it came out of the glaze kiln today, then you may, and in fact must, grade it in class. Just be quick!
 
Glaze and bisque out today.

If you need to glaze - glaze - keep it simple we are just about out of time!

See me for a job - I will try and write it on your sheet and then we'll check it off.

Glazing can be done today and afterschool until 2:00. You can also glaze on Monday in the school day only.

The bisque will be out on Friday. Last bisque in Friday, out Monday. Last Glaze Kiln on Monday after-school.

At this point all bisque ware be handed out and cannot remain in the glaze room.

All packets due on Monday. (If something is not done, then you will have at least turned in the notes.) Make sure you write on the back of the cover-sheet.
 
No glaze ware out today. It will be out tomorrow. I am sorry, but it did not run with the correct cone... Right box, wrong cone. :(

Seniors turn in packets at the beginning of class and clean-up sheets near the end at which point I will sign your 'walking papers'!! :) 

Congratulations!

Pick up your sheet. You will do this and ALL PAPERWORK at home. Class time will be used for presentations, finishing glazing and cleaning ONLY.

We are long done with wet clay.

Seniors you must have your packet on Thursday - no earlier than Wednesday and I will only sign your course completed sheets on Thursday. Not before.

The Glaze kiln is done, but as of this morning still very hot since it was very HOT.

Ms. H
 
Presentations begin today in periods three and four.(Scroll down to last week's post for the entire schedule) After the day's presentations we will be cleaning and beginners can use this day to foot - if they remembered to keep their project damp over the week-end ...


...  all the dried projects in the cupboard that were forgotten on Thursday are history... 

Please do the your writing at home and not in class. We need class time to clean and for a few of you gaze...


No water on the wheels at this point until everything that can be swept is swept - but remember do not make dust for no reason!!!


We are down to a very limited glaze selection right now. However the kilns will still be running as long as I can. A bisque can go in today if there is bisqueware.

 
HI. I still can’t talk – Laryngitis!!  :P

No separate lids have been fired

In order to get a lidded project fired they must be together!


Stay away from the wheels close to the lockers electrical problem!!
Bisque is done – next bisque – if it goes in today will be out on Monday and then one in on Wednesday and also Friday.

Glaze is done. If there are projects I will run the kiln every afternoon.

Senior Packets due the ninth. Clean-up tickets need to indicate WHAT you have been doing that period – i.e. it can say glazing and sweeping…. We are not using class time for writing or talking – we have a lot of work to do

Presentations start next week. Make sure your final draft is on line NOW (60 points) and your gallery is ready.

               MAKE SURE YOU ARE CLOSING THE LAP TOPS DOWN CORRECTLY. DON’T JUST TURN THEM OFF. THIS IS WHAT MAKES THEM GLITCH UP. IT LOCKS UP THE SOFT-WARE.

 
Everyone pick up clean up sheet. Have it checked off by me or Ms. Prior attesting to what you have accomplished this period. If you are working that's okay - but you need to do your writing at home at this point!!!

Seniors you need to be cleaning wheels and your lockers.

Bisque out tomorrow and another one will be in.

I will try and get the art room opened for Friday's activities.

Advanced students I have graded your blogs. Get your galleries up to date and make them actual galleries.
