These clays are the standard range stocked by us.
It is also possible to mix glazes at your request, but we kindly ask you to send information in advance to determine if we have the materials or not. Some materials may not be available in Hungary.

We do not keep a stock of small hand tools. Please bring your personal tools with you.
We have most of the large equipment you may need - wheels, hand turntables, slabrollers, extruders etc.

We also ask you not to send anything to ICS in a parcel by mail because of excessive customs fees and other difficulties. Please, bring everything with you in your luggage! If you have any questions please email.
