Any Recommendations For The Best Tools And Supplies Companies?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am new to this Forum and love to read the posts.  I've just recently invested in starting up a small Ceramics studio and purchased all of my supplies from Amaco such as Clay, wheels, Kiln to tools.  I was wondering if anyone can suggest any other good online companies with very competitive prices for their tools and supplies.  I have found that Amaco sells en extensive range but rather basic tools.

 

Thanks for the help.

A lot of clay supply companies are regional. If you post your region, you may get more help with specifics like clay, glaze materials etc. These items are freight, and as such you are better off to buy local if the materials meet your needs. Most clay suppliers will send you samples to help you make decisions about clay.

Thank you all for the wonderful suggestions. I am located in South America; what has worked best is ordering clean clay from the U.S. and having it consolidated in Miami and shipped overseas.  One can only imagine the extra costs and import duties.  Therefor it is best to purchase in bulk(for better discounts and considering our monetary inflation rate against the US Dollar) and stock up.  The clay keeps very well, although I wished Amaco would vacuum seal the bags, instead the weight of the clay keeps it closed. Unfortunately during unloading; boxes of clay are sometimes jumbled causing the bags to slightly open up.

 

Colby, Euclids, does have really good prices, I may try to order a few items from them.

 

Always open for more suggestions.

 

Thank you.
