About

ABOUT 

TCAC instructs adults only, over 18 years of age. All levels of experience are welcome! Whether you are a beginner or experienced potter,  our classes give you the freedom to create custom functional or sculptural pieces. Individual instruction allows students to learn the basics of ceramics as well as refine current skills. Wheel throwing, hand building, glazing and surface design are covered. 

We are located near the Campbell corridor, on Ft. Lowell just west of Campbell, at 1703 E. Ft. Lowell Rd.

Owner /Instructor Rebecca Pincus

After more than 20 years working in clay, I find my excitement never lessens. The clay's earthiness, the excitement of glazes and the magic of the kiln still inspire me every day. I believe my strength as an instructor is in identifying a student's goals and encouraging their unique vision.
