Still reeling from the aftermath of the recent Presidential election, as we wonder what lies ahead for this country, all of us at sfclayworks still have a great deal to be thankful for. Five years ago when we set our sights on maintaining the creative clay community that we were all a part of at “The Clay Studio”, we gathered our resources and energy to create this wonderful place to work. Five years have a gone by in a flash and as we head into the future we are thankful to our founding members, our incredible hands-up workers and, of course, our amazing students and community members. Together we are all a part of this supportive and creative community at sfclayworks. No matter what else is going on in the world we have a safe place to be creative together.

So a big THANK YOU to all of you who have helped make sfclayworks a success.

Happy Thanksgiving!
