Clayscapes Pottery, Inc. is located at 1003 W. Fayette Sreet, Syracuse, New York (13204). I buy clay for my classroom there – the Miller #10 is my favorite. My colleague and I also buy kiln supplies – most recently new kiln shelves.
In addition to merchandise, Clayscapes offers pottery classes and studio space. They have recently begun a monthly Sip ‘N Turn party, which I have no doubt is a blast. I would say that would be a lot more fun for me than to do one of those vino painting parties where everyone paints the same landscape.
If you are interested in more information, go to their website here. Or call them at (315) 424-6868. You can tour the facilities at any time they are open: Tuesday – Friday 9:00 am – 5:00 pm and Saturdays 9:00 am – 1:00 pm.
There is a gallery space as well. I was there earlier tonight for the Independent Potters’ Association artist reception. It is a group of eighteen extraordinary craftsmen and women. The ceramics were displayed throughout the venue, but instead of remaining for the duration of the exhibition, they were being sold right off the shelves. And selling like hotcakes. The piece in the poster for the show was sold, as well as an exquisite vessel that left its podium in a blink of my eye.
This makes me soooo happy. Thank you, art patrons, for recognizing the talents of these terrific artists.
It was a great party with free food and beer sponsored by Middle Ages Brewery. Get it? IPA for the IPAs (Independent Potter’s Association). Members include Peter Valenti, Don Seymour, Wes Weiss, Jessica Pilowa, Tim See, Tina Parker, Jen Gandee, John Smolenski, Millie St. John, Bobbi Lamb, David MacDonald, Brenda Conley, Lindsey Scott, Matt Hill, Karen Smith, Rebecca Wind, Sarah VanderVoort, and Wendy Emborski.
This show runs through April 30, 2016.
