¡Cerámica! is the result of over a year of concentrated effort by Audrey Leigh and Edge Barnes to bring to life a working/teaching studio and ceramic supply store serving the Triangle and east. We are small in space and staff, but large in heart. The premise of our business is that our target area is underserved in the area of clay supply, a void we want to fill.
Together we have extensive experience to share. Edge has been teaching clay for over 30 years. Audrey has a BFA in Studio Ceramics from the University of South Carolina with 10 years of experience in clay. She also brings knowledge and skills in welding and metal sculpture.
We will be offering classes at all levels, and workshops by visiting artists.
On the supply side, we will be offering a variety of clay by Laguna, Highwater and Standard. Coyote glazes, Laguna glazes, Mason stains, Kemper tools, Sherrill Mudtools, Jack Troy throwing sticks, Speedball bats and Boss Wheels. For those who mix their own glazes, we will have raw materials available and will offer the service of custom mixing customers’ glazes, either dry or wet.
Our studio will be available for members to work independently during times we are not conducting classes or workshops.
