Charlie Parker Pottery

Charlie Parker set his clay career spinning in 1967 at age 14 when he worked as a part-time clay-mixer at Minnesota Clay Company. As his passion began to flourish, he chased it to the studio of Warren Westerberg, working as an apprentice and molding himself into a master of form and expression. Today, Charlie's 3,600-square-foot workshop offers plenty of space for classes and open-studio time. Under his guidance, aspiring artists of all experience levels make their own projects from Continental and Laguna clays available for purchase. Charlie's artisans also offer their own pieces for sale in the gallery, including figurines and bottles guaranteed to be free of tricksome genies.

Customer Reviews

This experience was far better than I ever expected. Charlie Parker gives you so much hands on help and advice. He helped me (a total clutz and novice to clay work) turn a blob of clay into a beautiful piece of artwork (bowl). He also gave us an understanding of the medium and a greater respect for the clay artisans. I highly recommend Charlie Parker Studio whether for personal education or a fantastic (!!!) and memorable gift.
