Product Ordering

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 using a letter head or order form, or send an email using an official email address.

There is a 2% charge for Business Credit and Purchasing cards,  but not for personal or business UK Debit cards or personal credit cards. Your bank is still charging us 2% when you use a personal credit card so we would prefer you to use a debit card. International cards are at a 4% charge

You can ring or email a list to us and then we will then contact you about stock availability , delivery charges and payment.  Many schools etc send us a list for us to price up before they get it signed off.

Delivery Charges Clay Kilns Bisque

Over the years we have stocked many types of potters wheels but have settled on a range which covers the budget and needs of the majority of our customers.

Starting with a sturdy table top  PW-DCT, with optional legs;

a budget but very powerful ¾ HP Frema PW-DC-AH wheel;

the well known, extremely quiet Shimpo Whisper RK3T;   

and the well engineered Rohde HMT500.


Due to bringing these in a dozen at a time we aim to offer the best possible prices.

Finance options are now available on Wheels and Kilns

When it came to kilns, we spent a lot of time talking to customers and decided to supply the well engineered Rohde range - which have given us almost no problems in the 10 years + that we have supplied them.

We have continued to monitor the changes in design and quality control at other manufacturers. So we have now started offering the Nabertherm range of kilns, and the plug-in toploaders from Potterycrafts.

We are aware that it is a big decision to make so we support our customers by talking through their needs carefully, size, shape, ampage, delivery, first firing etc. Speak to us - special offers may be available.

As well as bisque tiles we do stock a number of domestic ware such as a teapot, eggcups, mugs, plates, jug, cereal bowl and a soup bowl; and fancy ware such as fairies, lizards, girls, motorbike, cup cake with lid, boat, camper van, pony, fish, cow, penguin, and little shapes.

These are UK made. To prevent shrinkage we recommended a firing range of the fancy ware and tiles at 1000-1060oC.

We also stock a range of 18 press moulds : plates, pasta plates, bowls, dishes, ovals, chargers etc

We do not stock moulds nor are we able to have them made.

Materials Glazes Tools

To keep prices low we bring in pallet lots of about 95% of the materials that we sell :-

If you need larger quantities please ask for a special price i.e. we have customers taking 100 kg lots of cobalt or copper, or a tonne of lead bisilicate or pot feldspar or china clay or potters plaster etc.

We stock a wide range of glaze materials which we regularly review as fashions change:-

We offer a wide range of items at cost effective prices as we buy them in bulk lots and pass on the savings to you:-

Potters Clays

We are a main stockist and distributor for the excellent Valentine Clays ranges of Standard, Earthstone and Professional Clays.

You can order from the sixty five clays  that we have in store (about half of the Valentine ranges)for collection or despatch including paper clays, powdered and casting slips.

We can get any of their clays for you on our regular inward mixed pallets.

We specialise in pallet deliveries by tail lift pallet network from the Valentine / Earthstone sliphouse and also from POTCLAYS and SPENCROFT in 250kg+ pallets. We usually are very competitive with prices on pallet lots.

We usually stock about 35 different books - as few people are born an expert in everything it is useful that so many people like to pass on their knowledge of the many varied techniques that make up the wonderful world of pottery.
