Welcome to Reitz Ranch

We’re having our first firing of our train kiln this coming weekend (Sept 22nd – Sept 24th) – this will be the first firing of this kiln in about 4 years.  Our open house is Saturday from 3pm to 8pm . We’re very excited and will post lots of pictures!



Community is the bottom line for everything we want to do. All of this is for naught without the people, the sharing and synergy that ceramic artists working together create.  And the results are beautiful, touching, tactile and thoughtful.  Those are rare gifts that we can bring to this world and we are committed to being part of it.

We’ve already received an enormous amount of interest in use of the facility from artists and universities across the country, and will be working with all to figure out the best approach to restarting firings, workshops, and other operations. We feel privileged to help ensure Don’s legacy, and this centuries old art form and techniques, not only continue but to thrive.

Our deep gratitude goes out to Brent and Donna Reitz for working with us through the purchase and transition of Reitz Ranch.  An amazing family!

Peter Held, Donna Reitz, Sheryl Leigh-Davault, and Brent Reitz
