Kiln Opening is probably the most exciting event for both
potters and pottery collectors. This tradition started when wood-burning
kilns were used exclusively. These very large kilns would accommodate
from 150 to 400 pieces of pottery and would be fired only a
few times a year. Unlike most studio potters, they depended
upon periodic kiln openings and outdoor pottery sales rather
than having showrooms or galleries open to the public. Today,
potters do not only use wood fired kilns, but gas and electricity,
which can be fired more often allowing potters to keep their
showrooms full throughout the year. So no matter how the pottery
is fired, potters use the tradition of a kiln opening to announce
having lots of new pottery available for sale. Come find
your next collection of pottery.

During the month of January 2015 I will be having a special sale of vintage pots from my 38 year career. The majority of these pieces were stuck aside for my own reference, or were given as gifts to my parents.
In addition, I have begun a much needed clean up of the studio and am offering discontinued glaze patterns at 40% off.
The link below will take you to a page on tomgraypottery.com that has images of a few of the discontinued glazes.
CADY CLAY WORKS will join eleven other shops on Busbee Road to bring you a special Valentine shopping Open House. Our store will be decorated for the holiday and we will have special heart-themed pottery for sale. Refreshments and studio tours will be available.
9am - 5pm.
