Hello,
I just moved to north Mississippi about 100 miles south of Memphis. Can anyone recommend a pottery supply house and clay retailer in the Memphis area? I've looked online and found nothing.

Many Thanks,
Terry

What about Mid South Ceramics? I think they are in Nashville, they might be ablke to direct you. They have some great glazes!

I guess I'll check with Mid-South Ceramics in Nashville - looks like they carry a lot of stuff. Too bad they're 4.5 hours away from me. I think there are a lot of potters in and around Memphis. Seems like a possible business opportunity for someone! Posted Image

There may be some sources in this. Free from CAD.

Westpoint MS ( http://www.marlyncer...amics_supplies/ This should be about a 1 hour drive for you


Also you might try this retailer in Morton, MS http://www.landovoz.com/ (central ms). They drop ship clay to me (same lb price and something like a $25 delivery fee for 2000 pounds ... cheaper than driving to get it). This should be about 2 - 2.5 hours drive for you.

Both of these are closer than 4.5 hours.

(I have no affiliation with either of these places, besides being a normal customer)

Thank you for the info - I should be able to find what I need without driving too far! The drop ship option sounds like a great option.

Thanks again,
Terry

There are 2 Pottery Supply places in Memphis, we don't have a whole lot to chose from.
• Arlees Ceramic Center - 3217 Summer Ave, Memphis, TN (901) 452-0802
Harolds - 2867 Cela Rd, Memphis, TN 38128 (901) 386-2574

Both places deal mainly in Greenware and Bisque but Arlee's does have some supplies, glazes, clay, and earthenware slip, etc. Harolds (Jane) carries Gare glazes, not sure about clay.
