One of the things we love about pottery is that once a creation is fired, the job is done. Every physical detail making that pot or mug or bowl special is captured in time, and the future is up to its owner. Next time around we can experiment with a different glaze or design, but the job—at least for the moment—is finished.
Most of life is different. Life is in flux, the clay is still on the wheel. No matter how well things are going, we can work hard and make them better. That’s true for art, for businesses, for families, for everyone. We continue to grow and encourage growth in those around us. The more we improve ourselves, the more our community improves along with us.
Blue Sage Pottery is doing great. That might seem a strange time to make changes, but we didn’t get where we are by standing still. Just as we continue to hone our craft, we’ll keep doing everything we can to keep Blue Sage the premier pottery studio in Amarillo, Texas. We’ve updated our logo and we’ve given our website a makeover. But the soul of Blue Sage hasn’t changed.
WE STILL MAKE GREAT POTTERY
There was a time, not that long ago, that everything we used in our kitchens was made by hand. Every treasured pot and pan was one-of-a-kind. At Blue Sage, we’d like to get back to that mentality of building something that lasts, but keep the convenience we all love.
The quality of our pottery continues to be exceptional, with every piece unique, functional, and long-lasting. We still make every piece by hand on the potter’s wheel or slab roller. Our work looks great on display in your home or garden, but our pottery is useful in your daily life. Our clay and glazes are still dishwasher and kitchen safe. Our pottery’s still as durable as it is beautiful, so you can brighten up meals and even your morning cup of coffee. All our pottery is dishwasher safe, so you’ll want to use it all the time!
We’ve expanded our partnerships with businesses who utilize our quality pottery for their own products. You can’t beat Blue Sage for consistency, and our large studio allows us to meet high demands. If you’re interested in using Blue Sage for your business, please contact us.
Our selections of urns has grown. We believe everyone deserves to choose how they’ll honor someone, or how they’d like to be remembered. If you’re interested in our urns, you can visit our studio or browse our online gallery.
THE BEST POTTERY CLASSES IN AMARILLO
Artists have a long history of passing on their skills and secrets from masters to apprentices. That’s why we’re still offering the best pottery classes in Amarillo. Whether you’re wanting to learn a new skill, make someone an unforgettable gift, or just looking for a new way to relax, you can’t go wrong with our pottery classes. We were all beginners once, and artists of all skill levels are welcome.
You can learn how to hand-build with clay or use the potter’s wheel. Each session lasts 7 weeks, with six weeks of classes. We take one week off for drying before glazing our creations. Those six weeks include two hours of instruction time and, for the wheel classes, two hours of open studio time per week.
Our wheel classes meet Mondays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon. Tuition is $180 per session, which covers the use of clay, tools and equipment, and the glazing and firing of ten small to medium size pieces that you can take home.
Our classes are in high demand, so space is limited. If you’re interested, you can learn more here. Remember, Blue Sage Pottery classes make a great gift!
We’re fortunate at Blue Sage to run a gallery alongside our working pottery studio. At our location on 6th Street in Amarillo, on historic Route 66, you can see our pottery (and us!) in person. We’d love the opportunity to meet you and demonstrate what makes our work so special. We’re open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Mondays by appointment.
It’s an exciting time in Amarillo, Texas. The arts community is continuing to grow, and we’re doing our part to add our special flare to the thriving cultural scene. Not only is our gallery the place to showcase our pottery, it’s our opportunity to feature the work of local artists. Blue Sage is the perfect place to find something special for yourself or someone you love, and we always have something new.
We don’t know everything the future holds for Amarillo and for Blue Sage Pottery. But we’ll continue doing what we love and helping others do the same. Come visit us at our gallery, or browse our creations online. You’re sure to find something new and special.
