Neat Neighborhood Find: Hinckley Pottery

DSCN1739

I love stumbling upon places like this. Granted when I was buzzed in and started politely asking questions one of the proprietors looked at me as though I was crazier than Howard Hughes…but l can forgive them that because this place is pretty damn cool. It has been open for 15 years and Ms. Jill Hinckley has been teaching for over 40 years. If you dig pottery you can get some great info on classes from Web site. The gallery/shop is located at 1707 Kalorama Road.

The brochure says “Hinckley Pottery is a privately owned studio. The studio is furnished with 14 electric wheels and a treadle wheel. Ed. note: I’m not familiar with a treadle wheel but I assume it is pretty bad ass. There are two electric kilns, two gas kilns and a propane fired raku kiln. Stoneware, porcelain, and raku clays are available, and students are encouraged to work in a variety of clay bodies. Hinckley’s gallery is adjacent to the classroom. It displays and sells works by Jill Hinckley and visiting potters.” Class schedule after the jump.
