About The Studio

The pottery studio is a fully functioning ceramic studio. We have three wheels that allow us to double up on work as commissions and orders come in. Additionally, these wheels are also used for pottery lessons! All of our glazes are formulated to be lead free and are tucked away for safe keeping when not in use.  And if you’re wondering what temperature we fire to, it’s mainly cone 5-6 oxidation, unless we are working on a special project.
