Fire and Mud Studios' spiritual owner, Rae Barney, imbues her teaching style and pottery creations with nature’s influence, helping to impart the world's innate beauty into the sculpting hands of her clientele. Intimate one-hour wheel courses edify no more than four sculpting neophytes with skills to mold twirling clay into formations including dinnerware, sculptures, and decoy strips of bacon to catch so-called “friends” red-handed. Students opting for two wheel classes can further enhance their clay-spinning proficiency along the pirouetting platform with a one-hour glazing class that indoctrinates pupils with the basic abilities to bedeck pieces in eye-catching accents. Potters are encouraged to keep hair pulled back and fingernails short to prevent ticklish teacups from squealing mid-instruction.

Fire and Mud Studios

Artist Rae Holton sees energy. The owner of Fire and Mud Studios and lifelong arts and nature enthusiast harnesses her inimitable sight of what she calls "the vein-like serpentine flow of atoms" to create offbeat works of art in a variety of mediums. Raised among artists and craftspeople, Holton has dabbled in jewelry making, photography, cooking, and ceramics, and cultivated a love for teaching after stints as a children's ski instructor and after-school program educator. Helming her pottery-focused studio, Holton helps others unleash their inner artists through classes and workshops as students learn the history of ceramics or how to remove the head off a classical sculpture with a hedge trimmer.

Customer Reviews

Fire and Mud is a gem! Great studio, great instructor. My friend and I took a "wheel" pottery class and the instructor explained how to do things and why to do them. She also came over and helped me with my clay pots when I had done something wrong.I had never worked with clay and I had so much fun and learned so much. I recommend Fire and Mud Studios!
