Are there any true wholesale outlets for wheels, kilns, other ceramic equipment, glazes, tools etc? My partner and I just incorporated our new fused glass and clay business and would like to purchase what we need at wholesale? Any help would be appreciated.

I don't think the word "wholesale" is correct for this situation. Wholesale prices are offered when you intend to mark-up and resell the purchases at retail prices. 

 

Being a commercial operation, you will generally pay the same prices for your equipment as any non-commercial operation. 

 

The good news is, you can write-off the expenses on your tax return.

If you are buying in bulk.... like 10 or 20 wheels at a time... most suppliers will work with you on per unit pricing.

 

best,

The only way to buy ceramics equipment at true wholesale prices is to become a distributor. Beyond that, be happy that pretty much everything can be found online at prices that are well below list.
