Ceramic Work Space Available

I am a ceramic artist seeking an additional ceramic artist to share equipment and work space. The studio is equipped with a digital Skutt kiln, a slab roller, work tables, slop sink and storefront display gallery space. This 1000 sq. ft. space has high ceilings, great natural light and ceramic tile floors. The studio space lends itself to ceramic artists, small scale sculptors. For more information click here.
