For over 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.  We are proud to support the NCECA community as a Corporate member
