Expired and Tossed Item on 6.20.2024

Dear DMS Potters,

Please be sure to get your items before they expire. We hate throwing away items you’ve spent time crafting.

REMINDER
We allow 30 days for your clay item to be on our In Progress shelves.

         **TIME LIMITS IN CERAMICS DEPARTMENT**

ITEMS ON BATS- 7 DAYS
Please try to return within 7 days to move your item from the bat to a board.

*If a project is on DMS bats over 7 days, we will attempt to wire off your project and place on a ware board. Thankfully, we have not had any issues with doing this yet, but mishaps can happen.




If an item needs trimming, you probably need to return in 2-4 days so it is not too dry to trim.*

ITEMS ON WARE BOARDS - 1 MONTH
*If left over a month, items are discarded.

   Members cannot take other expired items. They are broken and thrown away.*

ITEMS WITHOUT NAME & DATE
There is a risk of your item being discarded. When observed, it will be dated and a neon tag placed on the item with an expiration date.

If you see your item with this tag, please place your name and date on the item. Please remember to check on your items so they won’t be discarded.

We have also noticed some items have an included phone number. DMS is a volunteer organization. We are unable to call people to remind them of their expired items. You may want to place a reminder on your mobile phone so you don’t forget.
