Superb clay for throwing and handbuilding!  

We keep a selection of clay in stock for purchase.

Our clays are crafted in Michigan at Runyan Pottery Supply. Each batch is tested and tracked for consistency with its own lot number. The clay fits commercial glazes with ease and are easy to work with for both wheel throwing and hand building.


 Special and large orders are available upon request.

The Art Gallery

Come see our dedicated gallery where we feature local artists.  This beautiful and unique art is on display for admiration and sale. Each artist is carefully selected and has been through a judged panel.


Be prepared to get messy! Our campers create functional and sculptural ceramic pieces. Campers will explore hand building and wheel throwing techniques as they develop skills with clay. Campers will utilize glazes to bring color and finish to their masterpieces. Camps are open to children between ages 8 and 14. Projects are geared towards each age group skill level.

We will hold four sessions throughout the summer. Each session will have a morning and afternoon class:
Morning sessions are 9am-12pm
Afternoon sessions are 1:30pm to 4:30pm
