We offer mid-range firings for clay

Our studio fires in a mid range (^06 bisque & ^5 glaze). Both students and members use a ticket system for progress tracking (even from the comfort of your own home!)


Your own personal space for work in progress

Members have their own shelves so that when their pieces come out of our kiln they can be easily sorted and placed back on the members shelfs for quick pick up.


Use our tools or bring your own

While we do have dipping and brush glazes in the studio for members and students use, our members are more than welcome to bring in their own glazes. The studio will provide test tiles of each of our clays for you to test on as well as our staff’s immense knowledge of commercial glazes to draw upon.

Some of Our Testimonials

Comments from existing members


The Clay Studio is all excellent place to learn, be creative, escape, and play. I’ve taken several wheel throwing classes and now am a member so I can continue to work on projects and have a space to be creative. Everyone is welcoming and helpful. Great studio.

Being a member at the Cafe Monet studio gave me the space to create, collaborate, and continue to progress in my ceramic practice. I am so grateful to be a part of this community and would *highly* recommend it to anyone looking for a creative space!

Cafe Monet offers something that seemingly few studios in Austin do: flexibility. As a full time grad student, getting to the pottery studio during business hours is almost impossible. Being able to come and go as I please and work in an incredibly well-equipped space has been a game changer in maintaining my love for pottery.
