what you need to know
The studio is intended for independent use by artists who have ceramic experience. We offer classes for beginners if you are interested in using the pottery studio independently.
We have studio tools for use if you don't have your own, as well as approximately 8-12 house glazes available. If you prefer to use your own glazes, they should be in their original containers, and should be approved by the studio.
We make every effort to ensure your piece is fired in a timely manner. We ask our artists to maintain standard studio practices to limit the possibility of kiln accidents. The Art Establishment cannot be held responsible for any pieces which become damaged in the firing process.
We have 2 stoneware clay bodies to choose from for purchase: a versatile clay from Laguna, gray color when wet and Light Buff when fired, and a Standard white, which is smooth to throw with and shows off the glazes beautifully. Both are Cone 6. We do not fire outside clay.
Any clay or works in progress/fired pieces left in the studio longer than 3 months will be discarded or become studio property.
No production pottery permitted.
