The "40" and "10" glaze lists

At a previous Ceramics meeting, Scott wanted us to cut down the Potter’s Choice glazes. He said 30, but we argued him up to 40. And we threw out the number 10 to cut the Celadons down to. It didn’t work quite that way. I’ve actually cut the PC’s down to 36, and the Celadons to 13. We’re still less than 50. We’ll still continue to have several over that for a while, as we have stock in some of the discontinued items (discontinued by Amaco).

Thank you Beth!

Thanks for all the work yall do!

Just curious about the main reason for cutting the variety of glazes - is it because of the time it takes to upkeep the inventory? Budget? Something else? I support all yalls decisions. I am just wondering.

To some degree – room on the shelves. Mind you, when I started this the glazes were just up there anywhere. Once I put them in order by Amaco number (but not by type, so C-10 and PC-10 will be next to each other), it became evident that we might have several bottles of the same color. Still, we have sooo many. The donated Coyote, Mayco, and Spectrum are taking up a moderate share of the shelves, but we’ve never provided those. Well, except for the pandemic years when we might have to step out a bit to get very basic colors.
