Cup O’ Pottery’s owner and art instructor, Tracy Wilmes, demonstrates wheel-throwing techniques that students aged 9 and older will use to manipulate up to 8 pounds of clay into fetching pieces of pottery. This lesson includes pottery tools, decorating slips, glazes, and all kiln firings.<p>

Cup O' Pottery

Eight potters' wheels whirl next to shelves stacked with bisque pieces, worktables spotted with glaze, and walls hung with abstract art. The eclecticism of the space is one of owner and artist Tracy Wilmes's favorite things about his pottery studio, Cup O' Pottery—that, and the opportunity to inspire his students by leaping on a chair in his typical ebullient, and sometimes downright zany, teaching style. As a former high school art teacher, he loves educating students of any age, leading both family-oriented studio classes and open pottery paint and design sessions. The studio also includes a small retail area, where Tracy sells his own pottery and hands out mock detentions to disobedient clay.:
