Squeaky Wheel Potters

Squeaky Wheel Potters was founded in the spring of 2011 by Bob Tirman after he saw a need in the community for a place for advanced beginners / beginning professional potters to work. Although Bob is not a potter himself, he has enabled many potters in the community to have a place to play in clay at a reasonable monthly membership fee.

Squeaky Wheel Potters opened its doors in July 2011 and is now celebrating its second anniversary. It is run as a community of potters, with everyone taking on various jobs and responsibilities to make the studio function. From cleaning, to running the kilns, from studio stroll to paying the bills, it is all handled by the members. The membership is capped at 20 potters, due to physical space. There is 24/7 access to the studio for each member.

Come to the October 9, 2013 Clay Club meeting at Squeaky Wheel -- conveniently located next to White Duck Taco in Asheville's River District. Pot Luck, Hear our story, see our studio space along with our sales gallery, and maybe even see some mini demonstrations.
