Pottery Supply Websites

I use the closest supplier usually unless I need something like Wax-on and wax-off from Philadelphia's ceramic Store.

I replaced a part on my slab roller from Bailey's.

I use Clayworld in San Antonio (240 miles away) or Armadillo in Austin (320 miles away).

I've had a positive experience with bigceramicstore.com. Good selection and prices, free shipping on larger purchases (like the tabletop wheel I bought from them), and items ship quickly.

For bigger stuff like kiln shelves or kiln furniture, buy direct from Paragon...cheaper and eliminates the middle man. I hear many online ceramic supply companies buy from Paragon and don't even store many of their products on their own. But that was a Paragon rep telling me that  <_<

I order once a year from Laguna (I organize the truck load) Then my next go to is the local cermics store.

Also order from Baileys-Big ceramics store-a few orders from clay king-it all depends on the items.

I had great fun obtaining my basic studio equipment and supplies. I did it all online...there is nothing conveniently local.  Forum members' preferences, feedback, and expertise were helpful as were most of the retailers i contacted. I found it well worth the time to do the "cross-walk" of detail work for side-by-side comparison of prices, shipping and other variables. I saved $hundreds by doing this.  No disappointments and I could not say I prefer this one-over that one-since it really depends on the supplies and the different factors involved.

Ditto on Clay King for best prices on glazes and tools. They also are one of the few US suppliers of premixed Botz German low fire glazes which I am in love with right now.

A fellow potter turned me on to Rusty Kiln in North Windham, CT. They carry Laguna clays and glazes at reasonable prices, and if you live in CT they deliver directly to your door. They also do repairs on kilns, wheels, pug mills, etc. http://www.rustykiln.com/index.html
