Named after the late wife of Guy Warren, Joy Warren was a Sydney based ceramicist whose career spanned decades and was interspersed with a long academic career. Joy’s old kiln and pottery wheel was kindly donated to the Ceramics Studio.

The Joy Warren Ceramics Studio hosts a number of adults and kids term long classes and is always buzzing during the school holidays with local children learning the basics of throwing and handbuilding. The Studio has 7 pottery wheels, wedging and handbuilding tables, large storage space, ample handbuilding and throwing tools and two kilns. Gallery Lane Cove + Creative Studios offers various hiring options should you wish to use the wheel, handbuild or simply fire your works in our kilns (of which we offer half or full kiln rates).

If you would like to use the Gallery Lane Cove kiln services please email and include contact information, preferred firing dates, firing type (bisque or glaze) and clay type. 



No refunds or transfers allowed.
