Artist Spotlight

Local - One of a Kind - Handmade

Throughout the year, ClaylaTLV will be welcoming local ceramic artists into our studio with a whole section dedicated to their handmade ceramic pieces made especially for YOU!

These are one of a kind, locally sourced, luxury pieces that we cannot wait to see how you paint. 

 

During each artists' spotlight, we will host a handbuilding pottery workshop to guide you through creating your own masterpiece out of clay. Every masterclass will be led by that month's artist so you can learn all of their tips and tricks.
