Paving the Way

Buy a Brick Paver for our new building!

Here is your chance to have your name engraved on a brick paver that will line the outdoor Sculpture Garden at our new building! These bricks will help raise the final funds needed for critical necessities — kilns, wheels, and other equipment — and they will become a permanent reminder to commemorate our community's dedication and support for The Clay Studio. But hurry — the last day to get your brick is August 20!

Our New Building

Take Us Home!

A new future is taking shape. Our new building, located in South Kensington, is now under construction. Thanks to your generous support, we successfully raised the funds needed to break ground in January, and despite delays due to the pandemic, the foundations are now poured and we’re on target to finish construction in September 2021. We couldn’t be prouder of this shared accomplishment.

In the community

Making Place Matter

Making Place Matter is an ambitious exhibition, symposium, and publication that will inaugurate The Clay Studio’s newly built home in the South Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia, set to open in September 2021. As we begin this new chapter in our own history, the idea of ‘place’ takes on critical importance. Building a resonant conversation between clay artists and the community in our new gallery, Making Place Matter will be organized around the complex meanings of place in our contemporary social conversation.
