To be creative, you have to create.

Wheel Art is a pottery studio and school owned by Master Potter, Jacob Grant, MFA.  Jacob has almost 25 years experience working in clay/ceramics and has been teaching almost this long. With work displayed and sold for years at farmer's markets, art fairs and festivals, galleries, museums, and large wholesale shows, Jacob has functional pottery and ceramic artworks all over the world in private homes and galleries.

Wheel Art offers small class sizes for beginning and intermediate adults and memberships for experienced potters. In addition, we offer kid classes, scout troops experiences to earn pottery badges, field trips, Teens & Summer Camp, parties, events, and workshops of all kinds.

With Jacob's distinct hand-over-hand teaching style, he has collaboratively created thousands of pots with other people's hands.  When you create a piece with Jacob, his signature is signed along with your name to join a family of pottery and ceramic sculpture with the same signature, scattered across the globe.

Previous events and workshops have included Raku and primitive fire workshops, ornament making, carving clay pumpkins, and glaze chemistry.  Join us for our upcoming First Friday Studio Tour, Date Night or Wheel 101 courses.
