This is an opportunity exclusively for people with prior wheel-throwing experience, who are confident centering clay, setting up, and cleaning up after themselves. You will share the studio with a Terracotta employee or two as they work behind-the-scenes on other studio tasks and can assist with basic support but not active instruction.
Studio Wheel Hours include:
- Up to 5lbs of mid-fire clay
- Firing & glazing (cone 06)
- All basic tools
- Use of the wheel
Timeslots are intended for 90 minutes of throwing, and about 30 minutes for setup and clean up, for a total of two hours.
Potters should plan on returning to the studio within 3 days of throwing to trim, during wheel hours. No reservation needed.
All pottery on our wet shelves is recycled on Wednesday mornings, so please make sure and trim your work and place it on a drying rack before then.
Pottery that cracks during the drying process will not be fired; pottery that is deemed likely to explode in the kiln (too heavy/thick) will also not be fired due to the risk it poses to other artists' work.
Please be prompt: Due to the small size and shared community nature of our studio, we are unable to hold onto unclaimed work. Pottery that is unclaimed within 3 months is tossed. Please be prompt when glazing and picking up your work so that we can continue to offer maximum access at minimal cost for our community, thank you!
