If you were a student at one of my classes at the Bead and Button show, your beads are in the mail. Expect them soon. They turned out fabulous! Above you can see some of the beads that were made. I wish I could put all of them up but there were tons of beads coming out of the kilns this week.
Now that my book has come out and I have been teaching some classes, people are wondering where I buy my supplies. I buy everywhere and I think the best way to buy is locally. If you can find a ceramic supplier in your area then you can go and browse glazes and clay types. There are tons of test tiles and samples to see. It really is the best way to buy. Plus there are people who the run the shops that know all kinds of information to help. I am happy to drive an hour to my local shop, it is worth it.
If you can't find a supplier close by here are a few places online that can help. Also, google ceramic suppliers, you will find many more sources beyond these.
