In our new facility, Mudflat has expanded our studio artist program to
include more clay artists in a broader range of studio spaces and at a
variety of prices. We now have 2 types of artist categories: Resident
Artists and Associate Artists.
- Resident Artists are professional clay artists who have the
technical skill and experience to fire their own work in the studio
kilns. Studios for Resident Artists are private individual spaces or
shared studios with 1 other artist, or with 3 other artists. Monthly
rents range from $200-$305 per artist..
- Associate Artists are serious clay students looking for more
access, privacy and shelf space. There are 2 large group studios of
approximately 285 square feet each to be shared by 6 artists each. These
studios are equipped with a work table and shelving unit for each
artist plus a central work table and 1 pottery wheel in each studio
room. Associate Artists’ work will be fired by Mudflat technicians.
Monthly rents are $225 per artist..
Both Resident Artists and Associate Artists have 24 hour studio
availability, and use of other studio and classroom equipment. The
monthly rent does not include clay materials, glazes or firings, but
clay, glazes and firings may be purchased through Mudflat for additional
fees. A committee reviews all applications based on the following
criteria: Applicant’s level of professionalism, artistic quality of
work, and commitment to the Mudflat community.
For information on availability, fees and application procedures, call or write to the Director.
