From Our Editors
Armed with clay-crafting know-how, kilns for low- and high-fire finishing, and a team of notable, local ceramicists, Sunin Clay Studio founder Linda Pope oversees a pottery workshop designed with the layperson in mind. Anyone can drop in to pick up clay, rent studio time, or just bring their porcelain puppy in for a checkup. The core of the studio's services, however, lies in their beginner-friendly handbuilding and wheel-throwing classes. These four-week programs introduce progressively more advanced techniques, and the small class sizes allow students of vastly different skill levels to work alongside each other. Some special classes call on the specific schools of the potters-in-residence, such as Throwing Big and Tall—led by John Bogovich and aimed at assuaging a fear of attempting big projects—and the sculpting class, taught by talented 3-D portraitist Georgie Young. The fees for each of Sunin's classes cover all materials, including clays, glazes, and Stooge-insurance for the finished piece.
