For Schools, Ceramic Workshops and Pottery Classes

Schools rule! Over 1,500 schools trust us with their ceramic and pottery supply needs, and we would love to add more to that list. We supply everything from glazes and tools to kilns and slab rollers - you name it, we probably have it (we sell over 12,000 products).

Find more school focused information on this page. If you have any questions we would love for you to contact us at Our top rated customer service team is excited to help.

Submitting Purchase Orders

We understand that you need a quote to submit to your purchasing department before you buy. The best way to do this is to add the items you want to your shopping cart, then submit your request with the "Purchase Order" payment option. You are NOT COMMITTED OR CHARGED by doing this - but you will get a quote to print out and submit to purchasing. It also helps us, because we will have your order ready and in the system, in case you do want to submit a purchase order.

Remember to submit your purchase order by email or fax (775-403-2241).

Please Note: Due to recent difficulties in collecting payment from schools, we are temporarily requiring that school POs be paid in advance. Schools can pay via credit cards, check, ACH/Wire payments.

Please Note: If you submit a quote, we will only keep it in our system for 30 days. If a purchase order is not placed within those 30 days, we will delete the quote from our system. At this time if you still wish to submit a purchase order for that quote, you will have to resubmit your request.

Special Quantity Discounts

We offer a few quantity discounts that our schools love!

Liquid Glaze & Underglaze Discounts - Any Brand, Any Size

  • Buy 5-9, take 5% off
  • Buy 10-19, take 10% off
  • Buy 20-39, take 15% off
  • Buy 40 or more, take 20% off

Glaze and Underglaze quantity discounts are automatically added to your cart as you shop - no coupon codes, it’s that easy.

Kiln, Wheel & Equipment Discounts

Most items are priced below retail on our site. If you are ordering several pieces of equipment (e.g. multiple kilns or pottery wheels), we can look at your order and let you know if there are any additional discounts we can offer.

The best way to do this is add the items to your shopping cart as usual and begin checkout. On the Shipping Page you will see a place to type in comments. Type "Please Quote" in this comment box. We will get back to you within a day or two with any discount options. Please make sure the zip code we will be shipping to is accurate so we can work shipping costs into the quote.

Brent Wheel Discounts

In the market for Brent wheels? Let us quote your project! We can do special deals for multiple wheels for schools and art centers, and increase your warranty to 10 years!

If you have any questions, or want to get a manual quote, please call 855-994-2233 or email us at Thanks!
