Desert Light Pottery & Supplies ~ Home
Welcome to our Studio!
We are an official Laguna distributor as well as Olympic and Cress kiln distributors. We also carry an assortment of Duncan, Mayco and Amaco supplies and glazes. We have over 35 different firing clays (cone 06, cone 5, cone 10) as well as sculpting, oil based and no fire clays. Based on what you’re making, we can offer advice on which clay & glazes are best for your project. We have many tools to sell, for both sculpting and throwing. We keep a lot of cone 06 and cone 5-6 glazes stocked, but can order any that we don’t currently have on our shelves, including cone 10. Need help to purchase a new wheel or kiln? We can do that as well as help you find used equipment. If you have a used wheel or kiln for sale, let us know so we can help you find a good home for it. We also offer repair for kilns & wheels. So give us a ring, and we’ll do our best to help you find what you are looking for. Better yet, come visit us!

If you are looking for handmade pottery to purchase, we have a gallery stocked full. There is a wide range of functional work; bowls, mugs, plates, soap dispensers, garlic/ginger graters. Each piece has been hand crafted by local St. George artists so you’ll find unique gifts for the special people on your list. We also have many beautiful decorative pieces; vases, lidded vessels, bottles, teapots. We do custom orders as well, so if we don’t have what you are looking for we will get busy and make whatever it is for you! If you have some work that you’d like us to display and sell in our gallery, stop by and we’ll see what we can do.
We have a wonderful space for paint your own pottery as well as a large selection of items. Banks, figurines, cookie jars, mugs, bowls, plates, salt & pepper shakers, platters, teapots, butter dishes, earrings and magnets fill our shelves and need a good home! The purchase of the item includes the piece, the paint, the studio time, the glaze and the firing! The costs vary from $3 to $50, depending on what you choose. Come spend the day with us and get creative. Your piece will be ready in 1 week. This is a great event for girls’ night out or family gatherings. We also do parties, showers, corporate events, and reunions. Check out our event page or call us for more information.
We have a full pottery studio in back with lots of space. It includes 9 wheels, 4 electric kilns, 1 raku kiln, a slab roller, handbuilding tables, clay pugger, pouring section and clay extruder. We have a wide range of studio potters. Some are only beginning their exploration of clay, others enjoy it as a hobby or therapy, and the rest have been doing it for years. We believe that once you start, it’s very challenging to stop. So if you are looking for a place to get your creative juices flowing, come visit us!! We create an open, fun, creative and welcoming environment for you to play in.
