  • The Clay Studio is a non-profit arts organization with 40 years of service to the community. Originally founded as an artist collective, we have grown to become one of the worlds top ceramic art institutions, and Philadelphias only arts organization dedicated to ceramics.

    We serve the local community through the Claymobile outreach program that brings art education to schoolchildren throughout the Philadelphia region. We also offer classes, lectures, exhibitions and events for audiences of all ages.

    The Clay Studio is also known as an International Resource in the field of craft and ceramics. Our Guest Artist-in-Residence program has brought artists from over 40 countries, and our Resident Artist program provides a career-building opportunity for young talent.

    Our 40th Anniversary is a yearlong celebration that will engage more than 100,000 people and 3,030,725 media impressions.


    As a sponsor of Fired Up @ 40, we invite you to join The Clay Studio in inspiring the community with a yearlong celebration of excellence,

    innovation and community based arts.
