Amaco Glazes & Brent Equipment
In 2009, Amaco celebrated their 90th anniversary supplying artists working in ceramics! It all started with the first American-made modeling clay, Permoplast, which is still being used in schools today. (We just hope it's a little fresher batch of clay they're using: that first batch has probably gotten a bit stiff by now!) Today, Amaco is a leader in the ceramic industry on an international scale. We're very happy to offer Amaco underglazes, glazes, and other products for your creative endeavors.
Forty years ago, Robert Brent set out to build the industry's best potter's wheel. Dissatisfied with the design and performance of other wheels on the market, his wheels were the first to include electronic speed controls and DC motor technology with permanent magnets. Full production of Robert's wheel designs began in 1967. A few years later, in about 1973, Robert also designed his first kickwheel and invented the first slab roller. This year, as Robert Brent's company celebrates their 40th anniversary, Brent wheels are still among the "gold standards" of the industry and proudly manufactured by AMACO.
