moldy clay

I decided to go to school on Wednesday because I knew
I would be crazy Monday if I didn't. I wanted to go
through my clay stock and see what I had and decide
what to use with 8th grade next week. (Keep in mind
this is my first year and I still don't know what my
closets hold). I knew I had a lot of buckets of dry
clay and this whole time I thought it was white clay
mixed with red. Then I remembered the posts about
moldy clay and I looked at it closer. I bet I had 300
lbs of moldy clay in my kiln room. The custodians and
I immediately got rid of it, taking it to the
dumpsters. I've been sneezy and itchy with a scratchy
throat and runny nose since I started doing clay a
week ago- now I think I know why. To think I had kids
working in there wedging clay. Needless to say, I
have chocolate chip cookies to make for custodians who
unknowingly had some extra work to do on Wednesday!
Thanks to whomever brought to our attention the
reality of moldy clay.
