Seen in Rosewood Pottery Studio

Rosewood is not only a fantastic place for clay/ceramics students to buy supplies, but also offers artists in the community with wheels, kilns and more. As a Craft student, I love going to Rosewood to look at new types of clay and glazes. If you’re into clay or ceramics at all, it’s definitely worth a look.
