Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.

Plainsman Pottery Supply is a branch office of Plainsman Clays Limited of Medicine Hat. We have select-mined clays specifically for pottery-related uses since 1962 (in Montana, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba) and have knowledge and access to many other deposits. Plainsman is the key clay mining company in Canada, we mine thousands of tons at a time. Our deposits are limitless, consistent and produce raw clays that are balanced and very well adapted to pottery.

Technical Support & QC

We have a dedicated quality control and R&D lab to assure consistent products and it is ready to assist customers with development and trouble shooting issues. We were one of the first companies in the world to publish on-line data sheets and technical product information (in 1996). For help with a wide range of technical issues, please visit the Digitalfire Reference Library

What do we produce? Where do we sell?

We grind and package our clays and clay blends in bags, bulk bags and pugged form. We have sold products across Canada and into the Northern US for the history of our company. Plainsman has a reputation for excellent customer service, quick delivery (we maintain large inventories, no one delivers faster and more reliably year after year).
