Open Studio and Memberships

2020 Memberships

March 2020 Membership Update: We’re currently accepting new members! We strongly encourage those that have little ceramic knowledge to take our classes first. If you have questions please email: info@reitzranch.org


There are three tiers of membership.  These charges cover studio usage (lights on, air/heat, water, insurance, mortgage, blah blah blah.)  along with the use of the slab rollers, spray booth, pottery wheels, any other tools supplied by the studio as well as house glazes and firings.  The tiers are created around the amount of clay used equaling the amount of usage over a month.* We have an orientation days for new members on the 1st and 14th of each month at noon. If you’re interested in joining but can not attend the orientation please send sheryl@reitzranch.org or ben@reitzranch.org to schedule a time that works best.


Additional clay is available at $25 per 25 lbs/stoneware and $50 per 25lbs/porcelain. That covers the clay, house glazes and all firings, just like your base amount of clay and monthly dues.

*Please note clay and atmospheric firings do not carry over from month-to-month. Use it or lose it.
**Subscriptions renew 1st of every month, cancel anytime.

Bunkhouse Studio

Our studio is located in the historic Sullivan Ranch Bunkhouse.  There are two reasons for calling it historic: The foyer area was actually used as a bunkhouse for cattlemen moving their herds in the late 1800’s, and – of course – this is the area where Don Reitz created his work.  Some of the tools we use were his and we still have access to all of his CDs, if you truly want to completely immerse yourself in his aura!
