Yes, Christmas is a wonderful time to give your favorite potter that special gift.
My husband is great about giving me gift certificates to my favorite clay supplier. If you are looking for fast shipping on clay tools, try Clay King in Spartanburg, SC....
A gift certificate toward a workshop, a DVD from Ceramic Arts Daily, or a mug from their favorite potter ( many are on ETSY)..... I collect Lark Books...500 Teapots, 500 Bowls, 500 Plates...available on Amazon. The ideas are endless....happy shopping.
