The Peep Plug ShowThe Peep Plug Show has grown beyond our wildest expectations. It began as a fun contest to see who could create the most interesting peep plugs. They not only had to be decorative, they also had to be functional. This meant they had to fit into a standard sized peep hole, support themselves, and hold up to the extreme temperatures. Not all the entries necessarily met these requirements but some were just so fun we had to keep them in the collection.
We Have Posters!If you see us at the shows you know we have great posters for your kiln room and classroom. Some are informative, some are fun, and some are just downright Cool! Come by our booth at one of our trade shows and pick one up for free.
It’s Not Just a Coffee CupPete Pinnell, Potter and Head of the Ceramics Department at the University of Nebraska, was kind enough to let us share this video with you. In hit he gives us a new paradigm for looking at cups.It is amazing how many perspectives he brings into play that most of us would never consider yet are amazingly interesting and relative. What a great thing to share with your class.
See The Story Behind Skutt WheelsIn 2007 Skutt purchased Thomas Stuart Potter’s Wheels. It seemed like a perfect fit for our company. Former owner Tom Forte had an excellent reputation for customer service and quality and some of the most notable potters in the industry were already sold on them.Even better was their reputation of being the toughest wheel on the market meantthat schools were going to eat them up.
