Inside the studio - view of high ceilings, light adn beams


In 2005, Rita and Fred, her husband, relocated to Western PA. They sold the Warm Stone Studio, their house, junked their rusty van and moved to Rochester Mills, PA to build a new studio. They established The Clay House in Marchand, PA and started building on property they owned nearby. By the end of 2006, classes moved to Windblown Studio, a building designed and built to provide a stimulating, peaceful and open learning environment.

studio insideThe studio consists of over 1600 square feet, tall ceilings and lots of light. It has six potters wheels, electric kiln, and plans to build a gas kiln.

The studio is fully equipped for wheel throwing, handbuilding, or extruding work.

It is located on a country road, far enough away from traffic and the hustle and bustle of life to provide a sanctuary for creativity to grow.





The studio is designed to be transformed from a pottery studio to accomodiate special events, like yoga teaching, weddings, gallery shows, Raku events, or parties (this link opens a 50 second video).

Rita loves change. She embraces it with ease and energy. Don't be surprised that on your next visit to the studio, you will see something new, different, or redesigned.
