September 15th Hint of the Week

Mark Clay When you get a new box of clay take a sharpie and write on each bag what clay and/or Cone it is. We sometimes end up with the wrong clay in specific cone fired kiln, but more often we just can’t remember what that other bag of clay is in our stuff. Additionally people leave and leave or donate clay or give us clay because it is too hard. However, if it is not marked we often can’t use it, if we don’t know what it is. It’s also a good idea to put your name or initials on the bag too. As we all forget to put our clay away sometimes.

· Mark Tools It is a good idea to also mark your tools. Again use a sharpie and put your name, initials or your mark on your tools. When you forget and leave your tools [or clay] out we can return them to you. It is at least a weekly occurrence, and sometimes daily that we find tools [and clay] left out in the work area. We also have a lost and found drawer in green cabinets in the admin area.
