Best Potters' Paradise


No, not Harry and the Hogwarts gang. But for the hand-builders and wheel-throwers out there, this place has everything. A dizzying array of clays is joined by a panoply of glazes, underglazes, stains, lusters, texture tools, and anything else you can think of related to pottery and clay sculpture. Now in its 48th year, ClayPeople lives up to its motto, "Clay is the Way," by also providing firing services and equipment repair (you can go to them or they can come to you). If that's not enough, they also carry a line of the discontinued-but-much-sought-after Mason Stains that they blend from original specs. The owner and staff here are friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and will not look down on you if you never got past slab building in your college ceramics class.
