Rokuro Pottery

The word "rokuro" means "potter's wheel" in Japanese, and it is absolutely essential for any ceramic artist's vocabulary. It's not just a tool but a symbol that represents the cyclical nature of life and a person's ability to shape their surroundings into something beautiful. And Andrew Jacoff's Rokuro Pottery is a place where students can sit before the wheel and learn how to shape their own piece of stoneware clay art.

Jacoff is an accomplished potter with an art degree from Skidmore College, and his own pieces have been featured in many high-profile galleries. His aesthetic range touches on everything from classic Japanese design to modern chic.

During lessons at Rokuro Pottery, he stresses craftsmanship and attention to detail to students of all ages. With Jacoff as their guide during one-on-one lessons, they learn to throw the hump, build pieces on the rokuro, add texture to surfaces, and fire their own creations in the glaze kiln. In addition to making their own bowls and vases, art lovers can purchase one of Jacoff's pieces.

Customer Reviews

Andrew, the instructor, was quite friendly and explained things in a way that was easily digestible. I've signed up to take three more classes with him in November and would highly recommend Rokuro to my friends!

I'd highly recommend it! The instructor is super talented and helpful, and it's a small, intimate studio great for a private lesson. Will definitely be back! -S&C
