Wheel & Handbuilding


In the heart of downtown Los Angeles, Throw Clay LA is a space to learn, inspire and create the art and craft of pottery. 

From the novice looking to throw their first pot, to the experienced hobbyist hoping to create a complete set of dinnerware, and on to the advanced potter intending to open their first Etsy shop, Throw Clay LA exists to encourage the creative spirit.


Founded by potter John Prescott, our vision is to offer a vibrant and welcoming neighborhood studio - a creative way to get out and get involved with friends, neighbors and co-workers. Pottery is an art form in which you see immediate results. Beginners successfully craft their own dish-ware, cactus planters, or handmade gifts. Advanced potters demonstrate and share further skills while exploring artistic possibilities with their monthly membership.
