Clay/Pottery Contact: Adam

To compliment our kilns, we also have a Brent Model B pottery wheel, a wedging table, and an assortment of clays available for our members to use.  If you are new to working with clay (or haven't done it since high school), feel free to grab some of the general use clay and experiment.  If you decide to pursue it further, here's a list of the clay we have on hand and its cost per lb:
