Who We Are

Founded in 2019, The Ridge Clay Arts is a community of artists and students working side-by-side in a friendly environment that encourages and inspires artistic growth. We believe everyone has an artist inside them, looking to express himself and we want to help you find your artistic voice. Each and every one of our potters has experience in the studio and in the classroom meaning you get not only teachers with great art technique, but also great teaching technique too. Studio rentals and educational programs are also available upon request with prior reservation. Please get in touch today to learn more about our offerings.
