Kiln-formed glass, a fairly new and uncommon fine art form to the city, is the subject of Resurgam Gallery's exhibit Hot Kilns, Cool Glass: Contemporary Glass Sculpture in Baltimore. Artists Frances Aubrey and Elizabeth O'Hara assembled glass pieces, then melted and cooled them in a computer-controlled kiln. O'Hara also used other ingredients such as clay in her works, Aubrey said. Kiln-formed glass emerged as a type of fine art about 25 years ago, Aubrey said. "It's such a new medium we haven't exhausted all the possibilities yet," she said.

They use words most likely to be heard at a Scripps National Spelling Bee: chryseobacterium, aquaticum or trypticase. They envision careers in medicine, they enjoy math and science, and - between juggling schedules that include school, music and sports - they recently collaborated on a project that's headed for the International Space Station. One can only imagine what accomplishments are in store for Greg Nelson, Josh Choi, Sophia Novacic and Ryan Olsen when they reach high school.

Lime Kiln Middle School seventh-grader Michelle Wong cannot talk with the animals, but she can imagine what they might say, and she figures few would have kind words about last year's oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. She recently wrote a short play about a few sea creatures affected by the spill that was submitted in the Arena Stage 12th Annual Student 10-Minute Play Competition. With more than 800 entries submitted from area middle and high schools, Michelle didn't figure she had much of a chance at winning.

Folly Quarter Middle School pupils and staff were evacuated for about an hour yesterday because of smoke from a malfunctioning kiln in an art classroom, school and fire officials said. In a letter to parents, Folly Quarter Principal Carl Perkins explained that the incident was compounded by work being done on the heat, ventilation and air-conditioning system. Workers were replacing a part in the HVAC system and had temporarily shut off the air-handling system, said Patti Caplan, a school system spokeswoman.

Big red is right. This blend of zinfandel, cabernet sauvignon and valdiguie packs a wallop as it delivers a mouthful of spicy, robust, meaty flavors with hints of chocolate, blueberry and tomato. It's a little rustic, but graceful nevertheless, like a man who can wear cowboy boots with a tux and carry it off.

KILN, Miss. -- His mother remembered him as a hardheaded kid who "just stared at you" when you spanked him.His father remembered him as a high school quarterback who handed off on almost every play.His college roommate remembered him as a typical campus hellion about whom you couldn't tell the "really good" stories because they weren't printable.Such was some of the text from yesterday's Official Brett Favre Biographical Bus Tour and Swampland Expedition, in which 50 Super Bowl reporters piled into a bus, motored east out of New Orleans and spent a day exploring Favre's rural roots in southern Mississippi.

Al Luckenbach, who smokes several Tareytons a day, is within a few days of fulfilling his pipe dream. He intends to fire up -- at about 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit -- a reproduction of a 17th- century clay pipe kiln. If he succeeds, he and his colleagues at Anne Arundel County's "Lost Towns" archaeological project will have effectively re-created the only kiln of its kind known to have been unearthed in the New World. The kiln remains were discovered in 1991 by Luckenbach and his colleagues on a plot of land that is known as Providence, a Colonial settlement along the Severn River.

JEWETT, N.Y. - Susan Beecher, a nationally recognized potter with a bent for rural life, fell in love with the Catskills for its glorious mountains and deep serenity, qualities that infused her clay creations. Last year, she spent $30,000 to build a wood-burning kiln next to her cedar-shingled home here, and for a moment, she was living a potter's dream. Donald and Bridget Middleton saw this tiny town as an idyllic escape from the traffic, crowds and pollution of Long Island. So they bought a two-family house here and restored it to perfection, transforming it into a cream-colored chateau that they planned to use as a vacation home now and a retirement home later.

Students crowd around music teacher Nellie Hill and hold out their hands, telling her that their fingers still are vibrating after spending 45 minutes pounding on drums. That's one of the sensations students experience as part of Lime Kiln Middle School's World Music Drumming group. "I feel more like I'm playing when I'm using my hands, not sticks," said eighth-grader Paul Del Riego, who is participating in the group for the first time. "I feel like I'm more in the music. The sound that it makes is just really cool."

In a contest that was a test of endurance as much as spelling prowess, it was a relatively easy word, symbiosis, that clinched a trip to the Scripps National Spelling Bee for Heather desJardins-Park. Three hours after the Howard County Library Spelling Bee had begun, seven contestants remained on the Howard High School stage at 10 p.m., having survived nine rounds. The final 30 minutes of Friday night's competition came down to two spellers - Heather desJardins-Park, an eighth-grader at Lime Kiln Middle School, and Harsha Neerchal, a seventh-grader at Burleigh Manor Middle School.

The state is proposing to fine a cement manufacturer $20,000 for visible smokestack emissions at its Union Bridge plant and is ordering the closing of the kiln where the violations occurred.Michael Sullivan, a spokesman for the Maryland Department of the Environment, said his agency notified the Lehigh Portland Cement Co. of the proposed order and fine in a letter Monday.Sullivan said the fine covered 25 documented violations, dating to Feb. 21, of the state law against emissions that are visible because of particulate matter escaping into the air. State inspectors reported five of the violations and the company self-reported 20, he said.

Information about possible pollutants that was not included in Lehigh Portland Cement Co.'s permit application led the Environmental Protection Agency to order work stopped on a new kiln at the company's plant in Union Bridge, an EPA spokesman said.The action came as Lehigh prepared to pour the foundation for the kiln this month, said David H. Roush, plant manager at Union Bridge, who vigorously disagreed with the federal agency's allegation and said the company may take legal action.The federal Clean Air Act requires that factories file information about three significant air pollutants -- carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and soot -- and outline pollution-control measures before they build.

Megan Evans has loved clay for a long time. She admits it runs her life. There's always a piece to "throw," a bowl to carve or a vase to fire in the kiln. The clay never stops, never waits and always does what it wants. And, no matter how many orders she might be working on for one gallery or another, she often opens the kiln in her basement studio to a complete surprise. Much like Forrest Gump's adage about life and a box of chocolates, with clay, you never know what you're going to get. Despite the hard work, Evans is in high heaven lately.

Students from three very different classrooms gathered around a table at Cedar Lane School on Wednesday, using glitter, glue and markers to decorate brown paper bags for trick-or-treating. A simple project, but for Melissa Preston, it was the moment she had been working toward. "This is my home run," she said. "This is my magnum opus." As inclusion support teacher for Lime Kiln Middle School and Cedar Lane -- a one-year grant position -- it is her job to bring together students from the two schools.
