Where There's Clay, There's Fun!

EARTH - AIR - WATER & FIRE - these are the ingredients of pottery and human beings alike.  Each also contains an element of CHANCE.  Do not seek perfection in pottery or people for your search will go unrewarded and you will miss out on knowing good pottery and many good people. ...Unknown

No matter whether you are a professional artist, or haven’t touched clay since kindergarten, you will find the Marinette Clay Corner an exciting and fun place to be.

Facilities include wheels for pot throwing, rollers for slab and hand-building, clay extruders for the coil builders and 4 kilns for firing your clay creations.  The club maintains nearly 40 glazes for ready use and stocks a variety of clay and tools for purchase by members.  Member and non-member instructors provide a robust selection of classes and workshops where members can improve their expertise and expand their artistic horizons.  Custom Yard Art and one-of-a-kind pieces of pottery for sale in our club room. Stop in for a visit!
