Who We Are:

The Village Potters Clay Center is a collective of seven resident potters. The 14,000 sq. foot facility houses seven private studios, three fully equipped educational studios, thirteen varying atmospheric kilns, a gallery with four showrooms and a Laguna Clays Distribution Center where we sell clay, tools, Soldner wheels and Raku kilns.
Our extensive educational programs offer both in person and live online classes for adults, demonstration and hands-on workshops,
as well as an Advanced Studies Ceramics Program (designed on Independent Study and Mentoring).


Our mission is to nurture creative exploration through education, experience, and community.

Core Values:

Respect, Integrity, Service, Kindness, Excellence
