Our name, LampLight Studio, is in reference to an earlier time, a time when light came from lamps and pottery was fundamental to our daily lives. It was a time before automation, when everyone worked with their hands to creatively solve problems. We believe working with our hands and using our creativity is a fundamental element of human experience. It is a joy to do. LampLight Studio provides a creative playground for kids of all ages. Our clean and spacious pottery studio is open to the public for a variety of creative activities. We offer the most personalized pottery class in St Louis. Working with arts and crafts is fun and rewarding. Come join us on a journey of self discovery through creative play.
Arts and crafts are even more fun to do with a group. We host social activities for a wide range of different groups like office parties, birthday parties, bachelorette parties, baby showers, church groups, and many types of special occasions. Often, we simply host friends that like to get together once a month.
Playing with crafts is great entertainment for your gathering. We have a variety of projects to interest all skill levels. Our group sessions are designed to introduce creative activites into a social setting. Participants can choose from many different projects depending on their interests and abilities. The work is hand built using raw clay and decorated with colored slips. Later, after it has a chance to dry, we put clear glaze on it and fire it for you. It is ready to pick up in about two weeks. Make your next gathering an art party. Group Activities
Nearly everyone has had a pottery lesson at some time. Perhaps you made a pinch pot in grade school or threw a bowl for a pottery class in high school. Do you remember how much fun that was? We offer ceramics classes for everyone. Whether it is a wheel throwing pottery class, a hand building pottery class, or a fused glass art class, we can help you get you started.
Our art classes are organized differently than most. A art class consists of six sessions which can start at any time. The class is finished when you complete all six sessions. You can skip sessions without losing a class. This offers flexibility for a busy schedule. Class size is usually very small with just one or two people so you might want to do this with a friend. Classes
In addition to pottery classes, we offer access to our studio through an open studio membership arrangement. As a member of our open studio, artisans and fine craft enthusiasts have use of some of the finest ceramic equipment available: a Geil gas kiln with computerized reduction control, an L&L front loading electric kiln, a Skutt Glass kiln, a Laguna Raku kiln and one of the sweetest little front loading, downdraft soda kilns in the Saint Louis area. We also have plenty of shelving for your pottery work, a 30” Northstar slab roller and a Super Duper Clay Extruder with expansion box. Nearly all of our equipment was purchased locally from Krueger Pottery Supply in Webster Groves. In addition to the main pottery studio, our 5400 sq ft building includes a gallery/meeting room, glass studio, glaze room with spray booth and kiln room. Open Studio
We believe play is an important catalyst for creativity. Our goal is to provide a place where everyone can create interesting artwork and have fun while they do it.

Thursday classes with Guy Sachs 6:30-9:00 at LampLight Studio will begin on January 19th and will continue for six weeks. Students can enjoy this class with Guy as he discusses and demonstrates pottery forms and their functions.
My work is primarily decorative and currently focused on botanical forms.The flat structure of leaves and petals lends itself to working with flat clay slabs. The simple gracefulness of plant forms comes into play. Plants are intriguing. I enjoy gardening and visiting gardens. I spend a good bit of time walking through the woodlands along Missouri’s many streams and rivers.
My work is often asymmetrical, with simple smooth lines. I am influenced by mid century modern style based on Scandinavian modern design.
Our gallery currently hosts work from my first solo exibitition "Baptism by Fire". It is centered on signature focus, the cala lily.
