Joy Pottery

About Pottery Classes
Classes are offered year-round. I put beginners and advanced students together in the same class. How many classes you take is up to you. It depends on what you want to get out of it. I just try to help you be successful. It will take four classes just to get exposed to the whole process. Classes are $25.00 for each two hour class.
Clay and tools are included.  There is a small firing fee for glaze firing.
Classes are offered Monday evening and Tuesday afternoon.

The Joy Pottery studio was built by Bob Norris on land that has been in Rachel's family for five generations. We opened the doors in 1997. At Joy Pottery you can find Rachel at work making the pottery.  You can shop for pottery made by Rachel or several other artists whose work we carry. Visit us at 4544 Old Reliance Rd. (see map)The pottery Rachel makes is stoneware that can be used for food, in the oven, microwave and dishwasher. See the photo gallery for samples of Rachel's work.

At Joy pottery you can also take classes and learn to use the potter's wheel and other construction techniques. Once you have taken some classes there are also open studio times when you can come in and work independently using the equipment and supplies there.

Rachel also shares her testimony with a pottery demonstration. A testimony of God's grace, mercy and redeeming love demonstrated through Jesus Christ. Rachel uses the pottery making process to illustrate these biblical truths. Contact Rachel at the studio, 979-778-1323 or by email at
