jeff4Knowledge is power. As we all know, the only thing consistent about ceramics is its inconsistency! Raw materials, clays, glazes, and kilns change over time. Having the theoretical, technical, and practical knowledge of how to manipulate ceramic materials is critical to achieving your goals.

Acquiring useable information is the key to any production whether it’s making functional pottery, sculpture, or commercial ceramic products. Ceramics Consulting Services offers technical advice to potters, ceramics supply companies, ceramics industries, and teaching institutions. In the field of ceramics it’s not a question of if you have a problem and need help, it’s a question of when you will need problems solved.

The company was founded over thirty years ago by Jeff Zamek, a potter, ceramics teacher, and consultant. Jeff started making pots over thirty-six years ago when he received his business degrees in accounting and marketing from Monmouth University, W. Long Branch, NJ. He then went on to Alfred University, College of Ceramics, Alfred, NY and earned B.F.A and M.F.A. degrees in ceramic art. While at Alfred he developed the soda firing system currently used by many potters and college art programs.
