City Clay

City Clay is a community of makers who focus on the ceramic arts. It is a place for professionals to teach, sell, and continue learning. It is also a studio for students to develop skills, ideas, and a strong connection with the creative process. Our philosophy embraces both the time honored pottery traditions and the approach to clay as an art material irrespective of tradition. This studio is centered on the creative process and the joy of a community centered on learning.

Established in Charlottesville: 2011

Why do you love doing business in Charlottesville?

Charlottesville has the sophistication of a large city and the exquisite beauty of rural Virginia—satisfy the longing for both. I love this town and wanted to contribute to the creative community by establishing a clay studio that would support and connect potters, sculptors, and students. Nearly six years in, City Clay is doing just that. It is an amazing community.
