Who we are

Community + Art + Clay

Founded in 2005, Core Clay is a community of artists working side-by-side in a friendly environment that inspires artistic growth. We currently have over 50 members working out of our studio.

We believe everyone has an artistic voice waiting to be expressed. Each and every one of our employees has professional experience in the studio and in the classroom. That means you get not only teachers with great art technique, but great teaching technique too. We offer classes for wheel-throwing and hand-building,  (ranging from beginner to advanced) as well as weekend workshops, group events and bootcamps.

Are you looking for material for your own studio? We sell products ranging from clay to dry materials to commercial glazes. We also have a large variety of tools for sale, including, Kemper, Mudtools, Speedball and more.

Please get in touch today to learn more about what we can do for your artistic journey.
