What a great place by Terri W. at InsiderPages
I stopped at Jans Ceramics to pick up some glazes that I had been unable to find anywhere else. I had never been there before. The owner spent at least 30 minutes with me, giving great advice on how to choose a glaze, how to use it, and how to arrange for firing of the plates that I was doing. She gave me a very reasonable quote for firing as well. When I took the plates back to fire them (I painted them at home), she saw a few places where the glazes had rubbed off, and used her own glazes to touch them up for me prior to firing. What an incredibly nice woman and what a great place.
