July Newsletter

July is here bringing summertime fun! Art markets galore and warm breezes… barbecues and camping. I love being in Colorado for all the summer splendor. Do you have any vacation plans you’re excited for? I know here at Stone Leaf, we’ve been taking turns heading out of town.

Tracey just got back from North Africa and we just loved getting her photo updates of her adventures, from a crocodile refuge to local pottery factory it was quite a trip. We’ve also had some really fantastic industry expeditions to Amaco Brent and ConeArt to receive ongoing training, making sure our customers stay the most up to date with new products and information.

** Stone Leaf will be closed Thursday, July 4 **

Just a reminder that back to school season is upon us, sooner rather than later. Teachers, make sure you get your back to schools orders in by this date to ensure your supplies will be ready to go for your students in August. This also can serve as a reminder to all customers that we become extremely busy in August and September so if you’re needing a specific product or clay body, it never hurts to plan ahead. We want to make sure that everyone has their needs met, so just shoot us an email or give us a call in advance so we can set aside supplies for you.

Clay of the Month: ^5 BMX from Rocky Mountain Clay, $9.50 per bag

Smooth stonewares seem to be growing in popularity and this is a really fantastic choice if you’re looking for a more affordable alternative to porcelain. It has a creamy quality and finish, making it great for throwing and we love how the glazes really pop. This smooth body is perfect if you’re interested in carved texture. Try it out!

Glaze of the Month: Abandoned Special Order Sale, 30% off select glazes, no limit

We physically cannot stock every glaze of every glaze line of glazes available (although we wish we could), therefore we have a fair amount of special orders that come through our shop. For various reasons, we end up with extra glazes we don’t normally stock and don’t have dedicated space for. These include a variety of glazes from many manufacturers ranging in size and temperatures. Come check out our selection and you won’t be disappointed. Maybe we have the exact shade you’ve been after and you didn’t even know it.

Tool of the Month: Corks, 25% off in stock selection

Put a cork in it!! That’s what I always say. Who doesn’t need more storage space? Maybe you’ve been meaning to make a matching set of canisters for your kitchen. Or your pup needs a new treat jar. We’ve got our entire in-stock selection of corks on special because we know everyone loves ‘em. No limit for these, so take this opportunity to stock up.

Whatever your summer brings we hope you enjoy it to the fullest. Happy travels and happy potting!
