How the Smihty Clay Studio Works

  All instructional adult classes and full tuition Open Studio will include a 25# bag of clay (5 clay bodies to choose from), and access to studio tools such as sponges, trimming tools, and paint brushes. It also includes glazes, underglazes, and all Firing of your work.

Open Studio is the 💎 of the Smihty Studio because we offer huge Open Studio opportunities with four days every week and one low price. To sweeten the pot even more, we offer half-price if you add it to a class registration!

If you are unsure what class is right for you or have any questions, reach out to Kyle Pumilio our studio manager and he will take care of you! [email protected]

Kiln Rentals

We will be offering whole kiln rentals for people who do not wish to create work in the studio at this time.

If you wish to use clay or glaze not available from the studio, both must be approved by the studio manager prior to firing. We ask that you bring receipts or recipes for review and approval.  We reserve the right to deny firing if we deem it a risk to the equipment. 

Please contact Kyle Pumilio at [email protected] to arrange the time-frame for your kiln rental.
