Best Pottery Studio for Amateurs, August 2008

Students at Xiem Clay Center can live out their Jonathan Adler dreams with six-week courses in sculpture, pottery, and tile making. Each series of classes (registration fees start at $240) includes 25 pounds of clay and 12 hours of instruction. Students have access to the center’s studio, which opens on a patio that looks like a Zen garden by way of the Southwest. Those who sign up for premier membership can use the studio round the clock and have their ceramic work considered for display in the center’s 1,000-square-foot gallery.
