Ceramics are created by throwing, shaping, or sculpting a clay body — either by hand or on a pottery wheel — into a functional or decorative form. When completed, these pieces are covered in paint-like glazes, then fired in a high-temperature oven known as a kiln. Blick carries a wide variety of ceramic supplies such as high-fire and low-fire clays — from sculpture and earthenware clay to stoneware, raku, and porcelain clay, plus a great selection of glazes, underglazes, and glaze additives for high fire, low fire, and mid-fire environments. Blick also offers many brands of air-dry clay, modeling clay, and polymer clay for fine art and craft applications. Choosing the right pottery wheel, kiln, or other studio essential can make the ceramic artist's experience more enjoyable and productive. Blick takes pride in offering many models from top suppliers, and providing detailed information so you can comparison-shop and choose the equipment that is right for you.
Blick carries the widest selection of sculpture supplies for sculpting and adding decoration to your hand-built pieces. Carving tools for clay, wood, plaster, and stone are an extension of the artist's hand that help shape a piece, enhance negative space, and bring the artist's vision to life. Create pieces both large and small with rasps, rifflers, hammers, chisels, and knives from Blick. Inspired by the cosplay craze? Mold making and casting materials can lend realism — or unrealism — to your cosplay and theater creations. We also carry a variety of resins, molds, and findings for jewelry making and crafts, plus supplies for the glass artist such as stained glass, glass cutters and nippers, and materials for glass fusing and casting.
