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.
Additional clay is available at $50 per 25 lbs. That covers the clay, house glazes and all firings, just like your base amount of clay and monthly dues.
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!
The “pardon our dust” disclaimer: Please be aware that we are still working on creating the optimal space for our members. Right now members will be working in the finished classroom area that will be separate from the members’ area once we get everything done. But the studio is fully operational, if a little messy….
