Create your own path.

A non-profit clay arts studio for the growing clay arts community.

ClaySpace was conceived by a group of friends enrolled in continuing education ceramics classes. They envisioned a studio where one could study and work free of the constraints of the traditional college model. Pooling their talents and resources they created a studio designed to provide a rich learning and working environment for future artists.

Join the Community

It’s not necessary to create a masterpiece to have a meaningful experience.
