6th grade - Plates are nearly all finished!
The final batch of plates should be going into the kiln tomorrow! Remember that there will be not school on Monday for the students, so Mr. Christofferson's class (the last class in the kiln) will get their plates back on Tuesday.
The number on the digital readout is the temperature inside the kiln at the time the photo was taken. At that time, the temperature was still climbing to a maximum of approximately 2200* F!
Just a quick reminder,
~ treat your plate like the artwork it is!
~ yes, you can eat off of it, but make sure you hand wash it... NO DISHWASHER!
~ keep it out of the oven and freezer. We want to prolong the life of the plate for as long as possible!
~ ABSOLUTELY NOT FOR USE ON THE STOVE OR IN THE MICROWAVE!!!!!!
~ avoid sudden extreme temperature changes
and of course,
~ enjoy it for years and years!
