The Urban Studio

I make all my work in a studio just north of downtown Cincinnati, in a 100+ year old former warehouse. It is now converted to an arts center, 8 stories of artist studios and galleries.
Pendleton Art Center

The “Pendleton Arts Center” just celebrated its 19th year supporting the arts.  The “Final Friday” of every month is open house, a free gallery walk through the building to visit and shop in the studios.  I think my fifth floor studio has one of the best views! South to the Cincinnati skyline, of the Proctor & Gamble towers, and also the newest architectural addition to the city, the “Queen City Tiara”.

I split my work schedule: I make all my clay work at the Pendleton Arts Center. My wheel, slab roller and tools are kept there. Then I bring everything to my home studio where I have my chemicals, mix my own glazes, and have my ‘kiln bunker’ for firing. On my first trip I learned how to pack so I would not break and lose any (more) pieces!

There is a hand-operated lever for the elevator. It is one of the best (or most adventurous) parts of the place!
Or, take the stairs if you’re feeling fit!

You can find my studio on the 5th floor.
The hand crank elevator!
