It has been my pleasure to serve the clay needs of artists, potters, art instructors, and students for the last 36 years. One of the best parts of my job has been seeing all o the creative and unusual ideas everyone has for working with clay. Now in our 37th year, Flint Hills Clay Works has grown from a small back room operation to serving customers in 10 midwestern states and with a network of 9 distributors.

Retirement has always seems like a far away fuzzy concept, but I now find it approaching rapidly. I am pleased to announce that Flint Hills Clay Works will soon be moving to Lawrence, KS. Bill and Anne Bracker started their business about the same time as Flint Hills Clay Works and we’ve always been close partners in the clay business. The Bracker family now has many years of expertise in clay and are in a position to serve all your needs well, with expert technical assistance, abundant energy, and a greatly expanded product line.

For the immediate time, nothing will change… we will continue to mix your clay right here in Marion and deliver to you the way I always have. We anticipate that very near the end of this year operations will move to Lawrence. We will announce the exact date in advance at a later time to give you a heads up on when that will occur.
