The Clay Center of St. Petersburg
The smooth, rounded teapots and plates of Lyn Van Voorst. The modern shapes and exaggerated textures sculpted. Pat Underwood's dreaming woman, who has a bird's nest where her heart should be. These are just a few of the creations from the resident artists at The Clay Center of St. Petersburg. Here, many of these artists, including Van Voorst and Underwood, lead classes in pottery construction, teaching students how to transform clay into dishes, sculptures, and busts of their favorite landlord. The artists also display their pieces in the center's gallery, which guests can peruse during class breaks or events.
