My studio will be remodeling and repurposing most of the interior space, to include a couple other mediums, along with ceramics, glass and leather. Burning House will close November 15 for these exciting chances to take place. I will be asking for the current students to finish projects and take home tools, as the shelves will be moved.
I expect my interior projects will take about three months to complete, this time being the coldest part of winter, will be a great time to get things complete and a New Beginning for spring.
I especially want to thank all the artists that have ‘come as they are and left different than they were’. Love always Joani

Whats New?

Whats new at the studio?… Some fabulous new glazes, and as always I have lots of ideas. The studio hours are Tuesday 11-2 and Friday 6-9, I have lots of clays to purchase and tool kits, just right for beginners.
Just for the beginners? I offer private lessons for $45, on potters wheel, and with the open studio a beginner will be able to practice, I will help guide as well. I have a great first project for the hand builders, I show you how, you have endless possibilities!
Raku work will be on a first come first serve basis for room in the kiln. There will not be an additional charge for this special firing.
Lets start working on Tuesday? See you there.

No Thursdays

To keep the studio open and available to artists, I have to close the open studio held on Thursdays , The new days for Open Studio is Tuesday 11-2 and Friday 6-9. These are good days to drop off for firing services, I may be able to will call on other days for clay. Events and private lessons will be booked on Wednesday, Thursday or Saturday through the office 7602479000.


YES, its true,  my studio may close.  So, I hope everyone has patience with some of the new changes that may push a closing back. These changes may be difficult for some of my students, maybe all of them. They will be difficult for me!  The open studio times will be reduced to two a week Tuesday  11AM -2 PM and Friday 5 PM – 8 PM starting August 2, 2016.  I will be introducing new packages that include private lessons, wheel only studies, and project driven classes, along with my three hour open studios.  Maybe change is a good way?  I will be bringing some other classes to the studio starting in August such as a portraiture  painting/ drawing.   All the new classes will be on a MONTHLY fee for ceramics works or a standard one class fee.   NEW:   first time studio students will be required to attend Orientation at the beginning of the  month, before starting to work at studio. This is a one time informational and equipment demo.
