Join us on January 12, 2017 as we welcome our guest speaker, Barbara Benning of Clay Designs.
My name is Barbara Benning and I am the sole proprietor of Clay Designs/Benning. I studied Fine Arts and Art History at Kean University in NJ and have always enjoyed working in clay. When given the opportunity to sell my functional, soda-fired pottery at Pike Place Market, I jumped right in. I have now sold at the Market for over 25 years. Initially, I worked at Pottery Northwest in lower Queen Anne, a local nonprofit pottery with a 50-year track record. There I taught as well as honed my pottery/firing skills.
Since 2000, I work from my home studio in SeaTac as well as sell at Pike Place Market. I feel fortunate to be able to present my work at Seattle's historic, iconic, landmark.I look forward to meeting you and telling you more about my business.Barb Benning
