Blank Earth Pottery shares how they use our Buckets and Tubs in their studio.

Blank Earth Pottery has reviewed a selection of our square buckets and jars. She uses these products as storage containers in her studio for different aspects of the pottery-making process.

Su from Blank Earth uses our 5, 10 & 17 L Olive Green Square Buckets to store all of her dry glaze materials.

As the plastic buckets are square they neatly stack together on a shelf or freestanding.

She uses our plastic 500ml White Jars for storing oxides, coloured slips and test glazes. These jars have a screw lid which makes them suitable for storing powders or pastes.

Previously, Black Heath Pottery also reviewed a number of our products.

We've collated feedback from Black Heath Pottery and Blank Earth Pottery on how our products performed during the storage of materials, slips, glazes oxides and tools.
