Highwater Clays
600 Riverside Drive
Asheville, NC

Highwater Clays has been supplying our area's ceramic artists - and potters from all over the country - with top-notch, high-quality clay since 1979. It all started with a dough mixer and the vision of Gail and Brian McCarthy.

Today, Highwater Clays in Asheville operates out of a 42,000 square foot production facility on the banks of the French Broad River, and provides the clay many talented ceramic artists use at Odyssey School for Ceramic Arts on Clingman Ave. Highwater specializes not only in superior clay mixed on-site, but in kilns, glazes, ceramics resources, and the most knowledgeable staff imaginable. Store Hours are 8:30 am to 4:30pm Monday-Friday.

Every year, Highwater hosts a Community Open House with demonstrations, sales, and general merriment - keep your eye on's Events page for this fall's open house.
