Free Glazes

THESE GLAZES HAVE NOW GONE TO A GOOD HOME, THANKS

The Art Technician at Amery Hill School, Alton has been in touch. They have a selection of glazes in the department that  can no longer be used because they don’t have the necessary data sheets, so for health and safety reasons they can no longer have them in the department. However it seems a shame to throw good glazes away so if any potter would like them to fire and experiment with at home please get in touch with Mo directly and arrange to collect.Email: M.Rizzi@ameryhill.hants.sch.uk

Free Kilns

These kilns are going free to anyone who wants to take away.

They could be still used as kilns but need three phase electricity.
