And here is what a few looked like on January 8, as our frozen pipes began to finally thaw:
A few slightly damaged "survivors"
The "lucky ones" that were inside the kiln
The seventh graders who lost their work in this disaster took it well, thank heavens! Most of them took the option to recreate their projects and hopefully the kiln will be back up and running soon and I can get them fired. For now, there are almost 200 unfired clay pieces adorning every available art room shelf.
