A Day at The Office, Or Not

This entry is posted by Norman Adams. I wish to address the uniqueness of AA Clay and the wonderful asset of the gallery in this, none-too-subtle, plea to shoppers. Louisville has many treasures and I think this one is worth knowing about, especially if you are interested in ceramics.

No-Normal-Day

While most people would consider a day spent making clay pots not a normal day at the office, those who do are not just fiddling around.

AA Clay Studio & Gallery offers a space where the art created by the studio artists is available for purchase.

Conveniently located near Churchill Downs at 2829 South Fourth Street the AA Clay Gallery is the best place to shop for unique locally handmade ceramic articles. The active working studio artists and other selected artists at AA Clay Studio & Gallery  present handmade objects for your pleasure. Gallery hours are the same as open studio hours listed with this blog.

The joy of gifting is always special but think how more special the sentiment when the item is locally hand made! AA Clay can ship any of the gallery items to any destination you wish so make your choice and ask them to ship it to your far-flung relatives and friends pining for a special touch of Louisville.

Thanks for listening to my plea to patronize this truly unique Gallery/Gift Shop. I think anyone who visits will find their time well spent. And happy holiday shopping!

Now AA Clay Studio & Gallery offers an app for your phone to make shopping for beautiful handmade ceramics even easier. The app is for Apple and Android. Click on your system icon below for your FREE download.

The Feel Good Medium; a six pack of clay benefits.

  • 1.  Confidence – because we make an object that is relevant to our lives.

     

    2.  Focus – because we concentrate on specific methods and results.

     

    3.   Creativity – because we make highly personal decisions
    about artistic forms and meanings.

     

    4.  Physicality – because clay “pushes back” as we exert control.


    5.  Relaxation
    – when we get into the “flow” and lose ourselves
    in a meditative state.

    6.  Sociability – when we enjoy sharing knowledge
    and creative time with friends.

    AA Clay Studio & Gallery is a shared working space with modern clay equipment. Our goal is to promote excellence in the field of ceramics by providing the necessary learning tools and equipment for personal development. The studio is an access point for emerging and practicing clay artists.
