Sinistra Studio Pottery is owned and operated by Mary Joan. She is an accomplished artist and teacher and also owns Posh Paint Pub.  Her work in clay began 17 years ago hand building with young artists at her summer art camps at Posh Paint Pub.  Her interest being a potter began 6 years ago. She is so happy to announce that Sinistra will have a team of wonderful potters to assist you in your clay experience. We want you to enjoy thowing on the wheel and hand building as much as we do at Sinistra Studio.  We look forward to claying around with you.
