Clay Lives Here

Founded in 1966 as a nonprofit arts organization, Pottery Northwest is a longtime and vibrant source of programming in the Seattle arts community. Artists from around the world come to Pottery Northwest in the spirit of artistic dialogue and as a formative step in their professional careers. Located at Seattle Center, we feature world-class professional artist residencies, exhibitions featuring traditional and contemporary work, community classes, and an engaging lecture series.

Facilities

Pottery Northwest is a professional clay facility comprised of 7200 square feet in an early 1900s brick building at Seattle Center with an adjoining outdoor kiln yard. Our equipment includes potter’s wheels, a slab roller, an extruder, a spray booth with compressor, clay mixer, and various workshop tools (saws, grinders, etc.). We have a well-stocked glaze area, and both electric and gas fired kilns, including soda and raku kilns, a 40 cubic foot shuttle kiln, and a wood-fired pizza oven. We have recently upgraded our studio heating and lighting systems and added air filtration. There are a variety of semiprivate spaces available for residents.

Residents have 24 hour access to the studio.
