  • $129 for three 120-minute Throwing On The Wheel classes and one 60-minute glazing session (up to $280 value)

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.

Great instruction and a lot of fun! I really enjoyed myself and I'm looking forward to the glaze class in 2 weeks.
Cheri R. · April 17, 2015
Great class! Instructor goes step by step. Everybody's pieces turned out so different, but so beautiful, especially considering most of us were beginners.
