I was once located in Clearwater FL with the access to supplies that was pretty good. However now Im up in the northeast point of Georgia (Hartwell to be exact) and I think my biggest obstacle is knowing where to go for ceramic goods. I know that the members on this forum have to be spread throughout so would anyone know of places to go for supplies? From my searches I havent found much within an hour from my location. Even so what internet supplies do you find to be the best over all? I stumbled across Kentucky Mud Works and I was impressed by them. I recently picked up 50 pounds from Good Dirt in Athens GA but I do believe that they only sell clay being that they are mainly studio/gallery orientated.
Any help would be very much appreciated. Been a wonderful forum visit so far and I will definitely be returning.

There are several across the border in South Carolina. I am not familiar with the locations...
Clay-king.com in Spartanburg and Coastal Ceramic Supply in Summerville both sell moist clay but not listed as selling raw material.
I live 280 miles from my closest supplier. I ship. I am a Potters Council members and the benefits are great especially for shipping. You also get discounts on Ceramics monthly, Pottery making Illustrated, you get a web gallery as a member, and they offer health insurance. There are more benefits than that.
So welcome to our group.

I am looking forward to having everything ready to go and it is difficult for me to wait for my studio to be complete! I look forward to any advise that may be given. I am always open to advice and new and old ideas! Eager to learn anything and everything someone is willing to teach me.
