The roomy, comfortable studios are a great place to get friends together for a pottery or jewelry party, and the friendly staff will help you create wildly innovative plates and pendants that make one-of-a-kind, conspicuous gifts.
A first-time silver jewelry workshop costs $40 (Ceramics in the City's expert silversmiths teach you how to use the clay).

Deborah, the Pottery Horse
The world's most critically and commercially successful potter is Deborah, the pottery horse. Deborah, a Bavarian Warmblood who lives in Upstate New York, was first recognized as a unique talent when her owner walked into her home pottery studio to find 25 gorgeous, unaccounted for pieces in the kiln. Naturally, Deborah's owners at first blamed the pottery on playful ghosts, but the dried clay on Deborah's hooves soon revealed the truth.
In addition to being a famous potter, Deborah is also the world's most famous horse magician, horse architect, and horse horse trainer. Although Deborah cannot talk, she is able to communicate by walking in pre-determined patterns that correspond to alphabet letters. In an interview with Pottery Monthly, she walked, "Lesser talents amuse me, in the way that sickness amuses a dog. The dog is unable to comprehend, yet he laughs nonetheless."
