August Specials

August Specials

Published by Elise on Aug 1st 2022

Happy August, fellow potters and ceramicists! We hope you’ve enjoyed this summer so far, with confidence that August is no exception. 

August is kicking off with some lovely cloudy days, perfect for projects and peaceful production. Additionally, there are quite a few events coming up! For those looking to take part in local activities, the Jackalope Indie Artisan Fair will take place on August 5-6 in Olde Town Arvada Square, Arvada. We have the Vortex Music Festival at Meow Wolf August 5-7 for an interactive art experience, and the RiNo Showcase August 27 at Number Thirty Eight! 

That is to say, answer the call of your studio, but don’t forget to enjoy the boon of localized art fun.

As we continue to feel the struggle of strangled distribution, it’s important to enjoy our pottery where we can. You may be waiting on a wheel, or a kiln, or any number of glazes and items that are imperative to your production but are nowhere to be found. DON’T LOSE HOPE! We’re here for you! Although we can’t control distribution, we have a number of opportunities listed on our bulletin board at the entrance of our retail store. We want to remind our customers your joy is our number one goal and we’re in this tussle together. Always reach out by email or phone if you have a question! 

Onto our specials: 

Clay of the Month 

Biz Bod ^6-10 from Rocky Mountain Clay 

On special for $11 per bag, usually $16.50 (up to 100 pounds) 

If you’re unfamiliar with Biz Bod, this is a beautifully smooth light firing clay that works well in all applications, especially in salt and wood firing. A classroom and studio favorite, we love a clay that loves to be thrown, and this clay loves to be thrown. With a gorgeous combination of strength and plasticity, Biz Bod is perfect for folks looking for an easy-to-use high-fire clay. Worried your piece will flop on the wheel? Not with Biz Bod, which contains a diverse blend of clays meant to aid with sturdy fluidity. Get your bod busy with this wild deal.

For those curious,  THIS is a great YouTube video on how to use Mason® Stains to blend colors.

Elise and the Stone Leaf Pottery Crew

All Clay of the Month purchases are limited to 100# of clay. The sale price is valid only in August 2022 and not combinable with other discounts.

It's not uncommon for us to run out of the clay (s) of the Month, so we always suggest you shop early in the Month to ensure the clay is in stock. Also, when purchasing Glaze or Tool(s), or Equipment of the Month, again, it's limited to products on hand. So if we don't have it when you shop, come shop with us again soon! We replenish our shelves constantly – we'll hopefully have more soon! Got more questions about how this works? Please, please reach out to us!
