    Default Hiatus

    Benton Clay is on hiatus for a few weeks. Famly responsibilities, an extra heavy workload with my day job (and, yes an upcoming vacation!) dictate that I must leave this forum for a while and close the online store temporarily. Thanks to all our customers and I look forward to serving you again in the near future. PM's are welcome and all will be answered; however, responses will be slower than usual.

    Default Store back up and running

    Hey folks just a quick update that the hiatus is concluded. I'm no less busy; however my lovely wife (a.k.a. the Potter) has agreed to step in and help manage the store. If there's something you want but don't see feel free to ask!

    Welcome back. Will bowls like the one pictured on the right be made available on your web site?

    Great! Good to hear this. I put in an order a few hours ago for soap. Thanks for the samples you sent me a while back. Superb soap, my friend!

    Hi there, yes I posted another one but it sold almost instantly. The Potter is working on a few more as we speak. Will keep you posted.

    I want one of those dishes so badly. Everything about them screams "AWESOME!"

    Just received the Benton Clay Walnut/Badger brush. It is awesome. :) The packing was awesome, too. Think I'll post a couple of pics up in the Score.
    I sing while shaving.

    Glad you like it, Musical. Yes each LE is sent with a complimentary cotton/bamboo shaving towel (12.5x12.5"). And these brushes are on clearance at 22% off as they are last year's model, an amazing deal for a brush with a Simpson's hand-tied badger knot.



    @foppa @seizure - the lathering bowls are sold out again but will be back soon!

    Any anticipated arrival date for the lathering bowls? I check the site nearly every day hoping to see a resupply, but no such luck yet.

    Let me check with the potter and get back to you. I'm sorry I don't have an answer for you just yet.....

    Would you be able to provide an update on those lathering bowls?

    Thanks for the interest in the lathering bowl! The potter (my lovely wife) is very busy and she's saying about 6-8 weeks. I wish I could say earlier but I'm trying to be realistic...

    That's great news! Is there a way to pre-order one or put a deposit down?
