Wholesale Information & Terms
~ To the Trade Only ~
At Popcorn Studio Pottery, we make quality handmade functional pottery that is a joy to use everyday. Your customers will love the colors and the price. You will love the on-time delivery and our dedication to both you and our craft.
Ray has been making pots since 1969, Susan since 1979. Our work has evolved over the years that we have been making a living at our craft. We both love the feel of clay, its plasticity and how it responds to the touch. We care about each and every piece we make because we want it to bring joy to the person who buys it and uses it every day.
Our wholesale business is organized with you, the buyer, in mind. Our experience since 1983 has shown us that when you place an order you want your pots delivered on time. That is one of our hallmarks. We don't make promises we can't keep and we do deliver on time. We also try to make your job easier by not only sending you quality products, but by including selling aids such as a bio sheet about us to go with each piece and recipes to go with the oven pieces. Also, we utilize a vacuum packer which reduces the weight of shipments and also gets them to you safely.
We have learned that customers who buy pottery are usually attracted to the glaze colors first. We have developed our glaze palette to include colors that many people are decorating their homes with now. We try to maintain a consistency so that once your customers start buying our work they can come back and add to their collection year after year. We want them to come back to you and we want you to comeback to us.
