About Us

Our Story

Founded in 2016, Desert Sun Ceramics began with a basic vision - to share the wonders of clay and teach people of all experience levels to unlock their creativity through ceramics.  


Fast forward to 2019, and you'll find the studio's owner and creative director Hayley Knouff has been working to take that vision to new heights 


As we continue building a vision of art accessibility and education, we are expanding our services to include an annual schedule of classes, workshops, and more events open to the public. Our goal is to facilitate a communal space where anyone/everyone can come to explore their creative power.  


Our studio recently received a major donation from our extended community of supporters on Kickstarter. As a result, we've been able to improve our shared space dramatically! You can listen to our fundraising story on The Potter's Cast, or read more about our vision and most recent project updates here). We have many positive changes in the works as we expand our services in 2020, and we can't wait to share them with you!
