The studio will be closed for July 4th.



Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 1:00-6:00

Saturdays from 10:00-5:00

Sundays from 12:00-5:00.

Our new website and our video series will be posted the week of July 6

The limited studio hours are for anyone who needs to buy supplies. It is also for anyone who has taken a class with us in the past who wants to drop off pots to be fired, pick up pots, roll out slabs, glaze pots using our dipping glazes, or use the wheels (by appointment). The clay and glazes must be from our studio.

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

WHEELS for RENT to qualified CityClay students. We have three new, light weight Shimpo wheels for rent to qualified City Clay current or past students. Call the studio during our open hours for details.


After much angst and wringing of hands, the summer class session that was to start July 6 has been canceled.  It is our hope that the hours we are open for limited use, the videos we will be posting, the zoom sessions we will offer, and the wheel time in the studio and wheel rentals for home will make up for at least some of the disappointment. We just have to put safety first. If you haven't received a refund for a spring or summer class, please send us an email so we can take care of that for you.
