Welcome to Higher Fire

Higher Fire is both a teaching studio and contemporary ceramics gallery.

We’re expanding to a second location! Higher Fire Japantown is coming soon and will offer a state-of-the-art, membership-based studio for potters and clay artists with experience. The new studio will have on-site parking, 7000 sq ft of creative space, professionally-fired gas & electric kilns, supportive staff, and the friendly atmosphere of our downtown studio.  We can’t wait..!

Our downtown studio at 499 S. Market St. will continue to offer classes in wheel throwing and hand building — seven days a week! Private lessons from our fabulous team of instructors are also available.

We are open daily for pottery classes & studio memberships. If you have experience and are interested in becoming a member, please visit our membership page. Team-building & private events may be arranged for groups of 5 or more — your group will have a blast getting creative & muddy together!

Please see our Health and Safety page for information on our COVID-19 Readiness Plan.

Come in, Get Muddy!
