About the Studio

Scenic City Clay Arts is located across from The Times Free Press in Chattanooga, Tennessee. We opened our doors in September 2013 as a community-run arts organization, and were are located in the same space as the City of Chattanooga’s EAC Patten Pottery Studio, which closed in July 2013. In September 2013 we became Scenic City Clay Arts and in April of 2016 we became a nonprofit 501(c)(3).

Everyone is welcome from beginners to experienced artisans, and we offer an affordable workspace, clay, firings and education.

Our studio has 14 wheels, a slab roller, and an extruder along with tools  and hand-building molds available for your use. We carry dark stoneware, white stoneware, and earthenware, and we fire our kilns to cone 6. We have more than 20 glazes available for use in the studio.

We have open studio hours five days each week and offer adult classes and workshops several times each year. Families and supervised children are welcome, and in the coming months we plan to schedule family studio time, summer camps, and programs for school groups.
