Who we are

Community + Art + Clay

Founded in 2005, Core Clay is a community of artists and students working side-by-side in a friendly environment that encourages and inspires artistic growth. We currently have 40+ artists working out of our studio.

We believe everyone has an artist inside them, looking to express themselves and we want to help you find your artistic voice. Each and every one of our artists has experience in the studio and in the classroom meaning you get not only teachers with great art technique, but also great teaching technique too. We offer classes for wheel-throwing and hand-building,  (ranging from beginner to advanced) but we don't stop there, we also house workshops and group events.


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


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