Complete line of materials and equipment for potters, artists, hobbyists, and production facilities.
Aardvark Clay and Supplies was founded in 1972 in Santa Ana, California, with the purpose of manufacturing quality clays and basic materials for the studio potter in the most customer oriented manner possible. As our reputation with the potters grew, so did our trade with schools and universities. We soon expanded to meet their needs with a wide selection of potter’s wheels, kilns, tools, and books, etc. We now offer a well rounded selection of materials and tools for everyone, whether you’re a hobby ceramist, sculptor, mold maker, doll maker, muralist, or professional potter.
With the advent of the contemporary studio, we have made every effort to support this new approach to ceramics. We have consulted with many owners prior to opening and worked closely with them well after they have been established. Karen Rizuto, our contemporary studio specialist, has over 10 years experience as a studio owner and trainer.
Aardvark currently supplies: studio potters, production potteries, schools, contemporary studios, and traditional studios all over the globe. From the US to the South Pacific to Asia to Europe, we offer quality products and quality service.
Using our experience in the industry, we have opened our Ceramic Education Studio. We currently offer classes and workshops in all areas of ceramics, year round.
As our company has grown and changed, one thing has remained constant. We aim to provide the best possible customer service and products available.
