Family-owned since 1919, Amaco is the leader in offering safe ceramic materials, and the first in the industry to formulate lead-free glazes. With almost 600 AP Non-Toxic Lead-Free colors, Amaco Velvet Underglazes are top sellers because they fire true to color, can be mixed and layered like paint, and give matte or glossy effects. Amaco’s wide variety of other high-quality glazes and specialty glazes also offer consistent, reliable results.
The first manufacturer of modeling clay in the United States, Amaco makes more clay than any other company in North America. Amaco also offers a variety of talc-free ceramic clays, air-dry clays, and self-hardening clays like the tried-and-true classics Marblex and Mexican Pottery Clay, as well as the sculpting compounds Sculptamold and Claycrete.
In 1978, Amaco bought Brent Potters Wheels & Equipment, and now offers a 10-year warranty on all Brent wheels, many of which include the Classic Controller as a standard feature, assuring optimal torque and complete control.
Amaco Square Kilns are engineered to last more than 20 years, while Amaco/Excel Round Kilns, featuring Select Fire controllers, offer affordable options in a variety of sizes.
Amaco ceramic underglazes stay put where applied, even when fired. They offer controlled designs and come in a variety of formats; liquid, semi-moist, pastel stick and pencil. With underglaze, you can achieve a wide range of effects and detailed lines that you can't get with regular glazes.
