The Clayhouse, 2909 Santa Monica Blvd, Santa Monica CA 90404
The Clayhouse, established in 1971, is the oldest high fire pottery studio on the Westside. There are fewer and fewer studios of this nature due to limited space and obstacles in using gas-burning kilns. Gas kilns produce rich, beautiful glaze colors and unique visual effects with universal appeal. The unassuming storefront of The Clayhouse on Santa Monica Blvd displays some of the works of its 50 artist members. In the back of the storefront, there is a wide open studio with tables, wheels, kilns and pottery in various stages of completion. Classes are offered during week and weekend.
