We're back celebrating another gorgeous Pride season as summer kicks off in high-gear. As we immerse ourselves in the vibes of good weather, don't forget to support your fellow artists! Go to markets and say hello to your community! Enjoy the month to its fullest, just as we will here at Stone Leaf Pottery.

Celebrate the ceramic rainbow—pick up an array of glazes! Our store has a fabulous collection of commercial glazes ready to be a part of your studio. Have a question about glazes? Our floor staff are happy to offer their expertise.

There are a dozen more events to get excited about, but here are a few in particular:

We’re excited to celebrate Pride this year with an amazing group of events! There’s Denver PrideFest which hosts a plethora of art market opportunities June 22 - 23. We also have the Denver Chalk Art Festival the 1 - 2 and the Rainbow Market happening June 9!

For more art events, the Park Hill Art Festival will be going on June 1 and 2, and the Highland Art Festival happening June 8 and 9.   

Get ready to rediscover the magic of Ancient Copper!

After a temporary hiatus due to material issues, the much-loved PC-56 Ancient Copper glaze from the Potter's Choice line RETURNS!

The only discernible change is in its finish at varying firing temperatures, offering you even more versatility in your ceramic creations. At Cone 5, expect a robust copper satin matte surface. Meanwhile, firing at Cone 6 will reveal the sought-after bright copper blooms that has made Ancient Copper a staple in pottery studios worldwide.

**Estimated arrival in Denver: late June**  Pre-order now

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 June 2024 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!
