When Yourist Studio Gallery's founder Kay Yourist first touched clay at the age of eight, she instantly fell in love with the art of pottery. In 1984, this passion led her to open a home studio and begin teaching. When the number of students outgrew her small studio, Kay decided to open a facility that would fuse the aspects of a workshop, gallery, and art education center. Beneath the skylights of this equipped studio, Kay and her team of talented instructors lead classes that can take students from introductory to advanced levels. Boasting art degrees, international experience, and knowledge of any pottery wheel's circumference, the teachers use their expertise to design workshops that cover specific techniques and plan creative events. In other areas of the studio, reduction and oxidation kilns solidify freshly created masterpieces. Sculptures, pottery, and paintings populate exhibitions that introduce visitors to the works of celebrated artists, and free monthly video screenings tempt potters to fill their vases with popcorn.
