Studio owner Adam Loeffel is a native Memphian and grew up, like so many of us did, painting pottery. Adam studied ceramics at the University of Memphis. He teaches many of our classes and enjoys sharing his knowledge of art and art materials with others, encouraging them to make art!
Heather Prouty took her first sculpture class in 1995 while living in California. She worked primarily with clay and became hooked on the medium. She taught her first pottery classes five years later while living in Colorado.
Heather loves animals and has been a foster for local animal shelters for many years.
She received a BFA, with a focus on ceramics and sculpture, from the University of Memphis.
