Greetings,

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


WOMEN'S EQUALITY DAY, 2016- - - - - - - BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA A PROCLAMATION
Nearly one century ago, with boundless courage and relentless commitment, dedicated women who had marched, advocated, and organized for the right to cast a vote finally saw their efforts rewarded on August 26, 1920, when the 19th Amendment was certified and the right to vote was secured.
In the decades that followed, that precious right has bolstered generations of women and empowered them to stand up, speak out, and steer the country they love in a more equal direction. Today, as we celebrate the anniversary of this hard-won achievement and pay tribute to the trailblazers and suffragists who moved us closer to a more just and prosperous future, we resolve to protect this constitutional right and pledge to continue fighting for equality for women and girls.


At every level of society, women are leaders at the forefront of progress. Serving as judges and Members of Congress, setting world records in sports, founding groundbreaking companies, and fighting on the front lines of combat, women continue to tear down barriers and shatter glass ceilings -- just as they have done since the founding of our Nation. Yet such progress is not inevitable, and we must keep moving forward on our journey toward equality.
