It’s back to school, and as such, we’ve focused on popular school items for both our clay & glaze of the Month Sales.

August 2014 Clay of the Month: Laguna EM 210, White Clay

The EM 210, White Clay, is a great all purpose white low fire clay body. It is a wonderful choice for beginning techniques such as coil and slab building. Grey in the bag & white when fired, it’s a perfect choice when working with children and in a classroom setting. It’s also a wonderful clay choice for pit firing and burnishing: EM 210 is not just for kids!!J-Alex-Potter-Janet

ONLY $6.50 per bag in August 2014

the “rules”: 4 bags per person, no reservations/holds on the clay. Limited supply; when it’s gone, it’s gone.
