Learn about it all here

For nearly a third of a century, Bracker’s has been providing ceramics supplies to makers in the Kansas City area.  Since 1982, we’ve grown to serve primarily a 6 state region, though we do ship coast to coast and even internationally.  Whether you visit us to browse in our expansive main store in Lawrence, KS, pick up your products at our satellite location in Kansas City, MO, or order online and have your supplies shipped to your door, you can be confident that you are getting the highest quality materials and service around! 

We love being part of the ceramics community and we value the close relationships created by the bonds of clay. Our customers are some of our best friends. Learn more about our family-owned and operated business here on our website, and join the Bracker Community. You can also connect with us on instagram, pinterest, tumblr, twitter & YouTube as @Brackersclay and like our facebook page, Bracker’s Good Earth Clays

Product Knowledge

We are committed to providing only quality supplies.  We routinely test and use the products we sell.  This enables us to better answer your questions about the best techniques and materials to help you create your work.  Whether you shop online, on the phone or in the store, we always have time to teach you what you need to know to be successful.


Professional Development

We have a deep devotion to Ceramic Art Education.   In addition to providing daily advice and information, we offer a wide variety of in-services and professional development sessions, and even workshops directly with you and your students/group.  We have a variety of ready-to-go offerings from hands-on projects with clay and glaze to seminars on Electric Kilns to Raku Firings, or let us create a custom event for you!

Three times a year, we seek out top artists in our field to come present a 2 day workshop at our store in Lawrence.  It’s always a special experience for us and the participants.             

In the past, we’ve enjoyed great artists such as Robin Hopper, Lana Wilson, Steve Branfman, Linda Arbuckle, Robert Piepenburg, Kristen Kieffer, Forrest Lesch-Middleton & Adam Field, and we are looking forward to Marcia Selsor, and Ryan LaBar, Linda Lopez, & Peter Pincus!
