I have heard from a reliable source, that Southern Ice will not longer be supplied in the United States. From what I was told there was a flood at the mine delaying product and that the suppliers decided that the product was not worth importing anymore. Now, my source is one of the largest users of Southern Ice in the U.S. and they told me that they had inquired about importing it themselves and that they found that it was not a viable option. So it looks like this is the end for Southern Ice in the U.S.
Which makes it a perfect time to try Matt and Dave's Clays! Experience the best porcelains you have ever used. Made four throwing and building, there is no other clay like them out there.
And coming in 2011, Snow White, The best working, whitest Porcelain on this side of the Equator. In fact if you can provide me with proof that you are currently a Southern Ice user in the U.S. (Email me pics of Souther Ice in your studio). I will send you a box of Matt and Dave's Snow White to try for just the cost of shipping. $11, to anywhere in the U.S.
Hit the ground running with this transition.
