    I have about 8 boxes of white earthenware clay, that were 50 pounds each. The clay has dried out and needs to be re-wet with water to be used. This is Archie Bray clay from Helena, MT and costs $21 per box new. I moved here with it years ago and never bought a kiln! Moving again now, so I need to sell it and am asking $60 for all 8 boxes.

    This kickwheel was handcrafted for me in Australia by R.T. Slayter, a mechanical engineer. 

    The design is based on the treadle kickwheel designed by Bernard Leach, only built lower

    to the ground so as to be more comfortable and to fit into a home studio. It proved to be very

     popular among Sydney potters. I purchased 3 for my studio pottery, and later brought this 

    one with me to the US.  $1,200.00

    I have a hydraulic clay extruder for sale. I am not going to work with clay anymore so I need to sell this asap. It is a great, powerful, fast extruder! I have loved using this extruder for making coils for my production clay work. It is a custom made extruder and has 4 different die shapes. It is a work horse, tall and heavy. It is on wheels so it is easy to move around and has about a 3'x3' footprint. consider buying it before the end of May. I do not want to have to borrow a truck to move it, it is currently in my storage unit which I will vacate at the end of May. Please email with any questions about the extruder. Contact Sandra now.

    I also have a few clay books (science for the potter), glaze recipes cone 10 mostly and forms for building objects with clay if interested.
