Pottery Open Studio

 

LampLight Studio provides an opportunity for artisans and fine craft enthusiasts to work together in one of the finest open studios in the St. Louis area. Working together allows us to share the ideas and techniques that help us grow as artists.

Members are an important part of our pottery studio. As artists, we understand the focus and concentration required in creative work.  We give attention to good workflow in a shared environment.  This means easy access to the equipment and plenty of elbowroom to use it.  There is good shelf space and great sinks for cleanup. We like to keep it clean and orderly as much as possible.

 We have easy access to good sinks, large work tables, and plenty of shelving for your work.  Ten CXC Brent pottery wheels, a Northstar slab roller, Peter Pugger Pug Mill/Mixer, Super Duper Extruder with extention box, hand extruder with many dies, and a Giffin Grip for trimming. Since this is also the personal studio of the artist/owner there are many specialized clay shaping tools and objects to work with.

The studio space is clean and well lit. Large windows provide natural light.

Our glaze room has a selection of studio glazes based on the book "Mastering Cone Six Glazes" by Hesselberth & Roy. These glazes were developed for durability, fit and aesthetics. We also use Val Cushing's Handbook for general reference and additonal mid range glazes.

Most of our cone ten glazes come from John Britt's book "The Complete Guide to High-Fire Glazes".
