Use our clay and glazes (dipping or commercial) and we will fire for you.

Masks and social distancing are required in the studio at all times,  and there are limits on the number of people coming in; so far that has not been an issue.


The studio is open for anyone who needs to buy supplies, to drop off pots to be fired, pick up pots, roll out slabs, glaze pots, use our dipping glazes, or use the wheels (by appointment).

Wednesdays, Thursdays  1:00-6:00
