I have a turn around of 4 days on clay! yup I do....the kids make it...I put
it in the kiln and turn it on.....low..for about 2 days..the third day...I
slowly crank up the heat.....I fire almost continuously....so the kids make
it one week, glaze the next week...and it is ready to go home..sometimes I
wrap it up and give it to the classroom teacher to send home if I need the
space. Since I have been doing this...I have not lost any work. And...I
also don't have all those accidents that come from kids bumping into work
sitting on the shelves drying!

Good luck...I have 6 more weeks??? Until June 21...<sigh>
