The Pottery Studio, established in 1968, has evolved into one of the finest pottery studios in the Central Florida area. The main focus of our program is to provide a safe and relaxing atmosphere where individuals explore, invent, learn, and create at their own pace.
Our facility is spacious and well-equipped, with an open and inviting work area. We provide 12 electric pottery wheels, a slab roller, a spray booth and an extruder. Our facility maintains 4 electric kilns and two gas kilns, with cone 10 oxidation, reduction, and low-fire Raku capabilities. Clay and tools are conveniently available for purchase on site.

Mudslingers (ages 3-5): This program is designed to assist in the development of artistic skills through experience with clay sculpting and manipulation with hands-on age appropriate projects.
