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.

Enjoyed the class and I am considering taking more and have a few friend that want to take his class as well.

Very enjoyable and educational experience. Charlie encouraged our creativity. I am planning to return in the very near future and would definitely recommend it.

Absolutely WONDERFUL experience. Charlie is amazing and very patient. He is also very funny!!! My 2 sisters and I had a BLAST with him! I never in a million years thought "I" could even think of making a pottery bowl (let alone 2!) that was so beautiful!!!
