|ClayWays: Pottery, art and more await you at ClayWays|
ClayWays Pottery Studio & Gallery
Primarily a teaching studio, ClayWays Pottery Studio and Gallery supports and nurtures a diverse group of pottery students from all walks of life as well as more than two hundred forty children who attend clay camps every summer—all bound by their love of pottery.
The community created by ClayWays extends beyond its walls, supporting and nurturing a talented and close-knit group of artists. Besides providing classes and camps, ClayWays rents studio space to several professional potters.
The gallery provides a truly unique shopping experience, showcasing an exceptional variety of pottery, glass and jewelry made by more than fifty artists. The works range from functional to decorative and all are very reasonably priced.
Beyond the brick and mortar business, owner Kit Adams and a dedicated group of volunteers have formed Project ClayPlay, a nonprofit, mobile clay studio to benefit economically challenged kids. Plans call for the pottery studio on wheels—a gutted and renovated vintage Airstream motor home—to visit various locations within a twenty-mile radius of central Austin. Their goal is to be on the road in January 2009.
ClayWays’ interest in sharing a love of pottery with children will be showcased this month at the Texas Clay Festival, where they will be hosting the kid’s clay area as a fund-raiser for Project ClayPlay.
Whether you sign up for one of ClayWays’ many classes or make a purchase from the gallery, you’ll feel good knowing you’re supporting not just a locally owned business but the larger community that has grown from ClayWays. At ClayWays, your support is never taken for granted and is truly appreciated.
