The Professionals Choice


Celebrating 31 Years of
Excellence in the Pottery Field...

Bailey Ceramic Supply was the outgrowth of two professional potters, Jim Bailey and Anne Shattuck Bailey. What has always set the Bailey Pottery Equipment Corporation apart from other companies is the owners deep roots in the field. The core of the business began when Jim Bailey utilized his talents as a potter and designer to engineer equipment potters would appreciate. Anne Shattuck Bailey used her extensive knowledge of tools and materials to develop the supply division.

The Baileys have always been concerned that their customers get the very best products, extensive product information, and excellent prices.

In 1974, Jim Bailey was fresh out of Kansas City Art Institute. When he started his pottery in upstate New York, he designed numerous original machines to run his studio efficiently. In 1975, he released his first piece of professional pottery equipment, the 30” slab roller. Customers raved about it. Within two years, the Bailey Slab Roller had been evaluated by Studio Potter Magazine along with all other brands. Although the other manufacturers of slab rollers had been in field for many years prior, the Bailey was rated the best by a team of professional potters. Thus began the reputation for Bailey innovation. After 25 years, no other manufacturer has developed so many styles of pottery equipment. In every line of equipment that Bailey produces, you will always find unique functional features that teachers and professional potters truly appreciate. Bailey products are built to perform.

In 1984, Anne Shattuck Bailey joined the company to develop the Ceramic Supply Division. Anne incorporated her extensive knowledge and talents from her studio pottery background. Although born in the US, she studied at Harrow School of Art which was headed by Mick Casson in England. After graduating, she returned to the US and developed acclaim for her salt glazed porcelain. Her work has been published in books, shown in numerous museums, galleries, and in the White House. Her expertise in glaze technology and love of clay materials is the backbone of Bailey Ceramic Supply. Today she remains actively involved with day to day operations while resuming her work in clay.
