About District Clay
District Clay is a new ceramic studio devoted to all aspects of clay craft in the District of Columbia. The studio offers ongoing classes for beginning, intermediate and advanced ceramic students in wheel throwing, hand building and ceramic sculpture.
A new ceramics studio in the District features the most up to date technology for studying one of the world's oldest crafts.
Students who have taken pottery or ceramic classes have often talked about the miraculous feeling of creating something live, beautiful and useful out of what had been a lump of clay. Centering a pot on the wheel and then throwing it into an elegant vase, a handsome mug, a sturdy plate allows us the rare opportunity to create something solely with our hands, something that can be used everyday or passed onto as very personal gifts.
Curious about what it takes to throw a pot? Check out District Clay's instructor Jon Kerr throwing a very large ten pound cylinder on this You Tube video. http://youtu.be/h-DgIy36mDM
