Ordering from CTM Potters Supplies

 You can order over the phone, by fax, email or pigeon post but, unless you have a credit account - such as a college - you will  either need to speak to someone to make payment by card or make a bank transfer. Credit account customers must order on official paperwork or by email using an official email address.

Ring us or email a list - we would then contact you about stock availability, delivery charges and payment. A lot of schools etc ask us to price up a list for them before getting it signed off.

Business Debit and Credit Cards and Company Purchasing Cards are at an additional 2%. Unfortunately we have to also pass on the 2% charge for any international card.

Pallets deliveries are through a pallet network - not our own drivers. The drivers can only lower the pallet off the vehicle and pull the pallet a short distance on a completely flat hard surface. They cannot lift the pallet over kerbs or help lift or carry the product at all. This is a kerb side delivery.


Leadtimes of many tools, materials incl clay can be much longer than historically- we strongly recommend ordering  at least 1 month before you need items for projects and teaching so that we can look at alternatives.

For the safety of products such as refractory shelves, buckets etc it may mean that you cannot fit 27 kg into a box. Also, for safety we may not be able to put jars/pots in with 2 bags of clay or refractory shelves - only powders and tools.
