Welcome to Clay Owen Studios

Full Octopus Class 

Saturday December 22nd

from Noon to 2pm 


Come to our studio location at 1441 Northern Lights Unit F to glaze our new mug design. Pottery can take one to three weeks to fire. Once pottery is fired students can return to our studio for pick up. Students must return within 30 days of glazing. The studio will notify students as a courtesy however students do have to check in with the studio via email on the status of their pots. It is the students responsibility to stay up to date with the status of their pieces.



The studio provides 20 to 30 colors for students to choose from when glazing their mugs. Once these items are fired they will be dishwasher and microwave safe. This class is $45 per student with mug, glazing, firing, and studio time. Students must preregister for class, we can not take walk ins as we have a limited amount of mugs in stock. Those who purchase class must attend, we can not refund a class once it is purchased as we must keep our class full. Those who can not come may give their spot to another student but must first let the studio know forty eight hours in advance. To sign up go to a website at www.clayowenstudios.com on our home page.



Pottery may not turn out as intended, the studio does not re-fire glazed items. The studio does provide color samples however glazing results can vary which is out of the control of the studio. We do not refund or replace items that do not turn out in the kiln. This is the risk of painting your own pottery piece.
