Hello! Thank you for visiting our website. My name is Kristin, the clay lady behind Wonderland Clayworks. I have been teaching wheel throwing, hand building and working in community outreach for 10 years. Currently, I teach classes and workshops in the Gunnison Valley at the Crested Butte Clay Studio, the Gunnison Art Center and here at Wonderland Clayworks. I work as a full-time clay artist and exhibit year round at art festival events across the US. I specialize in working with clay creatives at all stages in their clay practice and I look forward to working with you! My clay process and teaching approach is a creative exploration, encouraging a sense of play as the ceramic form is deconstructed with a thoughtful look into its basic fundamentals and reconstructed with imaginative and technical solutions.
Here at Wonderland Clayworks we think outside of the box, nurture the imagination and work through the creative process with a fun and playful approach.
We are all one of a kind and our clay creations are too!
