Ware Pick Up

Once your piece has completed its final firing, it’s placed into the locked ware cage in the kiln room. Ware from the most recent firing is placed on the far right of the cage. Each piece is identified with a unique sticker as it comes out of the kiln that identifies the firing date. Since there is a firing nearly every week during the term, it’s a good idea to check the ware cage each time you come into the studio.

As kilns continue to empty, older ware is slid leftward further and further in the ware cage.  We have very limited space in the cage, so we ask that you please retrieve, weigh, and pay for your work promptly. You can do that during your class or at any practice.

Collect only your work, you may not pay for and remove the work of others. If you are uncertain whether a piece is yours, then you should leave it there. In that case, you should resolve to do a better job marking your ware so that you can be certain what is yours and what isn’t. Some students keep a notebook with sketches of their work so they can be certain of their shapes and how many pieces they expect to find.

If you do not wish to take your finished work home, then pay for it and discard it, or donate it to the studio for sale as a “Second“. It’s irresponsible to abandon your ware in the cage.  That places the burden of the fuel costs onto other students to cover via higher firing fees. Once you submit ware for firing, you are obligated to claim it, pay for it, and remove it from the studio.

The charges for firing per pound are:                                                                                        Brown Stoneware      $ 2.50                                                                                                White Stoneware       $ 2.00                                                                                                Porcelain                     $ 2.00                                                                                                Terra Cotta                 $ 2.00

.

Unclaimed pieces cannot be held indefinitely, and will be discarded or sold periodically.  A notice of such impending action is posted with the ware on a rollaway cart.  The studio is not responsible for lost or unclaimed work.

At the end of each semester, a special “Pick Up” schedule is posted so that everyone can come in to pick up their final pieces and bisqueware.  The charge for bisque is 1/2 that of the final ware.

Note:   If you are unable to glaze all of your work before the end of the term and you are not re-registering, you may glaze your work during the first two weeks of the next semester (in the summer for end of spring semester) during a practice session.

    Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
