It’s deep, dramatic and it’s back in stock: It’s Power Turquoise. A studio favorite, we have received a small shipment of this hard-to-get glaze (shown above on Standard 182G clay with textured surface inside and out). While supplies last–which, typically, isn’t long!. $10.30 per pint

The Best Trimming Tool. Ever.  I  January 19, 2017

Meet the DPT-120. If you haven’t tried it yet, it’s strongly recommended. $13.50
