Welcome to the Carousel


Lucretia, Ben’s Ceramics, and Dru. Thanks for following the carousel.
Folks, your email address often doesn’t reveal who you actually are.

Today is T – 2.

Everything is several days later than planned but it’s okay. We’ll go anyway, even if we leave dirty dishes in the sink. LOL Packages that should have shipped early in the week go to the post office in the morning. Some of the ceramic repairs and game boards for gift baskets are just not going to happen.


There will be Open Classes during vacation for regular students on Monday or Wednesday evenings. Just let Alice know that you are coming. There will be no studio fee while we are gone since there will not be a teacher. Any items that are glazed or underglazed (concepts) should be left on the kiln cart for firing.

Midwest Ceramic Show

If you wanted to enter something in the competition and didn’t get it here last week, Laura will be packing up the items Monday night during class. So bring it over and speak with her.


Trees from last year that are on the top shelf are 25% off last year’s prices.  I will also give 25% off any other seasonal bisque; that is, Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas, including all of the ornament drawers (4 carts in the games room) and shoe boxes of bells (bottom of the bisque shelf units). To qualify for the discount you must take it home to paint or paint it before we get back. Trying to clean off the shelves so if you just move it from the bisque shelf to your shelf, that does not help. If you are painting bells, they must be glazed in order to ring (at least on the inside). You can use Concepts or any type of glaze except crackle.

That’s all for today. I need to go pack!
