I don't think there are any in my area, either, actually. We used to have a pottery shop where I think they sold blank clay matrioshka dolls, but then it closed down. I've got one in my house, even if it is older than I am XD
The ones online are usually pretty expensive, and they can take a while sometimes, too, which sucks. I always prefer buying things directly from a store rather than purchasing online.
Same here! I love working on different media, experimenting, learning. In a nearby town we've got a shop with blank wooden goods (like boxes, frames, small furniture, masks and other things like that). It's really sad they don't have more products!
Same here! I tried out wheel-spinning pottery a while ago. It's difficult, but I like it. We have a shop nearby with wooden stuff too, but, like you, there isn't much stuff there outside of the ordinary (like boxes). I also aim to try out wire-wrapping (see 's gallery) sometime, too.
