GHP On the Rise
Plans for Building Expansion

Greenwich House Pottery is a nonprofit that was created for artists, by artists. Our legacy is wrapped up in the history of American studio ceramics and our future is expanding to encompass the world of contemporary art. We are proud of what you have helped us accomplish, and with your support we are ready to do more.

After careful thought towards our future, we have launched a campaign to support a building expansion that will increase the size of the Pottery to serve the growth our community has experienced over the past ten years. To keep pace with our current student body and to ensure equal access to the studios for everyone, we will be expanding the kiln room and basement and adding an elevator and rooftop garden.

  Rendering of new rooftop garden. 

We will add a new structure in our existing courtyard with a 23-foot-high ceiling that will be level with the existing roof above the slip-casting studio. Below the current space we will build a basement for clay mixing, clay storage and out-of-the-way garbage storage. On the ground floor we will expand the existing kiln room and add new kilns, a utility room and an ADA-accessible bathroom. We will add a new garden on the roof, which will be an outdoor space for our students that will no longer be shared with garbage, grinding or stocked clay.

  Rendering of new kiln room. 

The expanded kiln room will help to increase our capacity for firing—meaning faster turnaround for your work—and it will have a new air ventilation and heat-recuperation system to help control the temperature to keep the kiln room and slip-casting studio from getting overheated. The elevator will accommodate all students and ensure the safety of our seniors and disabled students in moving through the Pottery. The elevator will also be an improvement to the system of material distribution to the studios so the classrooms are always well-stocked with clay.
