    People who own pottery studios need different types of supplies to make their designs. Not only do they need equipment such as kilns, molds, and tools, but they also need supplies such as clay, glazes, and colors. There are several online retailers that sell ceramic equipment and supplies. If you have not purchased these items before, then you will need to know which options you will need to make clay pottery. The products that you choose to buy often depend on what types of pottery you want to make in your studio. In order to run a ceramics studio, you will need a collection of basic equipment. This includes a wedging wheel for throwing the clay, an anvil, and a kiln, as well as several brushes and knives. You can also choose to purchase additional equipment that will help you create certain types of pottery. For instance, you might want a specifically shaped knife to cut detailed drawings inside the clay. You will, of course, also need plenty of supplies for your art. Many people like to add color to their pottery with glass tiles, paints, bisques, and powder mixes. These are often applied before firing the object in a kiln. Some methods involve adding color with brushes and other tools while the raw material is on the paddle wheel. This allows artists to make swirls of color. You could also decide to use finishes that add color after you have already molded and baked the clay. Look for options that appeal to you so that you can explore different techniques.
