Students at work at the wheel

About Our Community Studio Workspace

Yourist Studio Gallery is a synergistic, residential, artistic community dedicated to excellence in our personal ceramic works and in our educational offerings. We nurture creative spirit through shared energy, sharing and teaching of ideas, and by providing a community workspace that allows for individual growth. We provide exhibition opportunities for our artists whose works are professionally developed.

We strive to maintain a mutually sustainable healthy ceramic studio environment through the example of our resident artists, through the practice of our instructors educating students, and by students themselves, using the highest etiquette of cleanliness at all times, in all studio areas.

Our regularly changing gallery exhibitions feature local and national ceramic artists as well as our very own studio artists. Our annual Holiday show features the works of the Yourist Studio Community of Artists and each summer we exhibit our works under one tent at the Ann Arbor Art Fair. We are an evolving, growing community of creative, inspired people who are passionate about clay.
