Retailers & Dealers

Retail stores are primarily focused on selling ceramic and pottery supplies. Retail stores and teaching studios - some specializing in potter supplies, others focused on traditional slip cast ceramics and some who do it all - serve their local community with product supplies and classes.

Traditional ceramic shops would be well versed in the use of casting molds, greenware decoration (unfired ceramic ware), acrylic colors as well as fired glazes. They may conduct classes in their retail store or have arrangements with local teachers working from their home studios.

Pottery supplies retailers are experts on hand building and wheel thrown clay art. You can expect to find a variety of clay bodies, equipment, raw chemicals, and glazes in these locations. Wheel classes, studio space rental (hourly, monthly, etc.) toll firing (will do bisque and glaze firing for a fee) are some of the additional services you may find here.

Retail partners are required to have a federal tax ID and state vendor certificate/license.
