About City Clay

We are a community of makers who foster and enjoy a deeply creative life.

City Clay is an independently-owned clay studio that offers a creative environment, equipment, classes and gallery space for professional potters, and adult students, including the University of Virginia Clay Club. The studio is located in The Silk Building, an historic structure, in Charlottesville, Virginia. City Clay’s community of potters and artist share ideas, expertise, inspiration, and a lot of fun.

Students of all levels can take classes in wheel throwing, hand-building, sculpture, and surface design. City Clay has two 16-wheel studios, 3 hand-building and sculpture studios.

Purchase your clay supplies online. Our knowledgeable staff can help you choose the right tools, clays, and glazes.

The City Clay gallery is a retail showcase for work by professional potters as well as that of the City Clay teachers, members, and students.

The City Clay community is a vibrant and engaged community that has held numerous fundraisers in support of the Charlottesville Chapter of the International Rescue Committee, the Sexual Assault Resource Center, and Pure Madi, a UVA initiative to address clean water supplies in developing countries.
