Clay Art Center
The Clay Art Center, Port Chester, NY

"We already used part of the Bailey Gift Certificate to purchase some badly needed kiln shelves for our community arts kiln. The gift certificate will help support our mission to offer a stimulating space for studio practice, exhibition and educational opportunities to better serve the community. Clay Art Center’s vision is to kindle a passion for the ceramic arts and to provide a community for that passion to flourish.”

"As a champion for the power of the arts to change lives, we continually run similar programs for individuals and groups who struggle with emotional, medical or personal challenges. We additionally provide free and equitable access to our gallery and classroom programming for those who need it most. Programs offered in the elementary, middle and high schools in our home community of Port Chester, and throughout Westchester and Fairfield Counties, reach low income youth, and through them, their families. All of our community arts programs create a safe haven for youth and adults, which allow them to relax and find room to grow."

Miriam B. Rosenthal

I am in the early phase of my exploration of making ceramics. I have been around ceramics and craft for years as a collector and photographer and decided last year to learn how to do it myself. I have been taking classes and spending lots of extra time in the open studio at The Art League Ceramics School in Alexandria, Virginia. Most recently, my classes have been about surface design. Receiving the grand prize gift certificate from Bailey’s will enable me to be even more creative as I obtain more tools and more glazes to try out more techniques and ideas. I am very grateful for this and excited to see what I can accomplish. Through my involvement with the James Renwick Alliance, a support organization for the Smithsonian’s Renwick Gallery and other craft organizations, I have gotten to meet many well known ceramic artists and have gotten even more inspiration from them. This spring I got to meet the Gills from Alfred University. That was a super treat.

Rena Stuck-CO

"I retired from the medical field after 35 years and needed to find something to keep me busy besides house work. I found a pottery class at our city Rec Center here in Loveland, Colorado a few years back. One class and I was hooked.. I now teach pottery at the same rec center. And have my own studio where I hold private pottery parties along with team building events. I have found my true passion in life and am able to share it with others. Thank you Bailey's  for your part in this fabulous journey.  Your support, great products and customer service is outstanding."

Spring 2017 Winner
Allison W. Hayne - Texas

"A few years ago, anticipating becoming an empty-nester, I decided to take a few ceramics classes at our local art school.  I enjoyed making mugs and bowls to use at home and to give away to friends/family.  My husband then gave me a pottery wheel for Christmas!  I then decided to take over my girls' backyard playhouse to use as my ceramic studio.  I am so excited to use my $500 gift certificate to buy a slab roller so that I can experiment with hand-building.
