I’d like to add to the discussions:

North warehouse sink discussion/cautions.

Apron discussion.

Also, and this may be something we can just do, rather than vote – looks like we need a couple of glazes which aren’t in the cabinet as re-stock.

Are we using Mixing Clear as the clear that we buy?

The last time I was there the clear was out so I purchased a mixing clear as a replacement based on a recommendation from Trinity. It is fairly full and on the shelf so I did not purchase again when I went last week.

Which glazes do you think we need? There are a couple that Trinity has been out of and I was going to order from elsewhere, i.e. snow, ancient jasper and another 1 or 2 that I’ll need my list to confirm

I think we’ve got Snow in the cabinet. Or a mostly full bottle on the shelf…

There was a list on the whiteboard. Ancient Jasper is pretty useful, and that’s on the list. I haven’t double-checked all of them. 3-4 Celadons, mostly. I was asking about the clear because someone (RJ??) wanted “clear gloss”, and didn’t catch that we’re using Mixing Clear. Although, it looks like it’ll take most of our bottle to glaze all the bisque that’s on that board.

The “Glaze Request” white board has items we don’t normally stock as well as a couple we couldn’t get.
