Martha Grover Hands - On Workshop
Saturday Hours - May 17 - 10am - 1pm
Stop in on Saturday May 17, from 10am - 1pm to stock up on all your studio needs! As always, Rovin is searching high and low for the newest and most innovative products for potters and clay artists. Have you heard about the new GR Pottery Forms available exclusively at Rovin Ceramics? These forms made their debut in the Rovin booth at NCECA 2014 in Milwaukee and sold out fast! They are durable and economical. These drape molds will not scratch or chip like plaster, but your slabs will release when they are leather hard! You can find them on our website at rovinceramics.com.
