March 2018 Product Specials

Here’s looking at you March. Shamrocks, leprechauns, and NCECA… mischief abounds while clay is thrown around? I’m not sure about that, I might have a case of the cheesies.

November 2017 Newsletter

Happy November,

Fall is flying by, isn’t it? This month we have Daylight Savings, tons of holiday sales, and Thanksgiving to look forward to.

The week of Thanksgiving, Stone Leaf will be open shortened hours so that our staff may enjoy time with their friends and family, and make time to bake!

Thanksgiving Hours will be:

Tuesday & Wednesday 10 am to 2 pm

Closed: Thursday & Friday

Saturday 10 am to 2 pm

 

Saturday is Small Business Saturday, and we’ll be having a variety of ONE DAY ONLY sales to celebrate. An email with these specials will be emailed out sometime on Thursday or Friday. Be ready, Potters – there is going to be some good stuff on sale. (Wheels!!)

For November, we’re bringing you some staff favorites… we hope you love them as much as we do!!

 

Clay of the Month:

Los Altos! Laguna’s Cone 10 Los Altos Clay is by far and away one of our all time favorite bodies in Laguna’s line up. This golden tan clay is great for everything we’ve ever done with it – throwing to handbuilding. It works great at Cone 5 (check for watertightness as needed) and is beautiful at Cone 10. Best of all – this clay is an amazing throwing body. The magic of this clay makes you throw like a rock star – it amplifies your skills & you can produce some exceptional pieces with this clay.

 

Try Los Altos for only $8.25 per 25# bag this month
Regularly priced at $10.75 per bag – limit 100# of clay per person

 

Glaze of the Month: Amaco HF9

It’s no secret that when it comes to clear glaze, the glaze we “push” the most is Amaco’s Cone 5 Zinc Free Clear. In fact, we push it so much, we buy 1 zillion pints at a time. Okay, it’s not a zillion, but it sure seems like it. Limit 6 pints of glaze per person.

This clear glaze is creamy and ready to apply straight from the jar, it glides onto our pots easily. The benefit of using a zinc free clear means underglazes will stay true to color – instead of greens flipping to weird shades of brown. We highly, highly recommend this glaze.

 

Buy a Pint of Amaco’s Cone 5 HF 9 for $9.95 this month
Not-on-sale-price $12.40 per pint

 

Tool of the Month: Mayco Stamps & Stencils

Mayco offers a variety of additional products to use with their glazes and underglazes – whats more fun than creating patterns and textures on our pieces?

Mayco Stamps: are 6.75 by 2” and are perfect for impressing into clay or daubing with under/glaze to create fun designs – they have about 60 different stamps – you’ll be sure to find something that’s great for you.

Mayco Stencils – are 6×6” with patterns cut out of thin plastic than can be applied to tiles or any clay surface and then color applied. Both stamps and stencils are made of flexible materials, allowing them to be used on curved surfaces. These stencils offer thicker lines/patterns than the stamps, and can be layered upon one another for a unique look. Limit 6 total stamps/stencils.

 

Enjoy Stamps & Stencils 20% off this month!
Sale Price on Stamps $4 and/or Sale Price on Stencils $4
Otherwise $5 each.
