The Clay Studio

Philadelphia’s Clay Studio is a center for local, national, and international ceramic arts communities: a place to learn how to work with clay, a provider of educational programming, and a venue for exhibiting contemporary ceramic art. The Clay Studio has used Center support to shape plans for its future growth, particularly in light of the organization’s need to move from the Old City location it has occupied for almost 30 years.
