Hello!

HOW IT STARTED
 

What began as a home-based pandemic pivot-project born out of necessity, has since transitioned into a growing small business.​

 

After eventually outgrowing her home studio and stepping away from large-scale group teaching, Wyeth established Pinch. She began working out of the creative hub that is The San Diego Made Factory in September of 2022. 

With several years of combined teaching experience, Wyeth and her team specialize in small group, hands-on, private lessons for both children and adults. The private setting allows for an in depth look at ceramics, not often found within large group settings. She hopes that everyone who visits Pinch leaves with a unique piece of pottery made by their hands, as well as a love for the craft and a desire to try it again!

HOW IT'S GOING

Today Pinch is a fully operational 1000 sq ft ceramic studio located within the heart of downtown San Diego, CA.

 

Pinch is a modern take on the classic ceramic studio! We aim to step away from the traditional studio setting + pottery lesson format, and instead provide a boutique pottery experience.

 

Equipped with 8 potter's wheels, four large handbuilding tables, a glaze station, and a 7 cubic ft kiln, we have a wide range of offerings.

In addition to classes Pinch offers themed workshops, drop-in studio time, private parties + events, and a selection of purchasable wares made in-house!

Come Pinch with us!

Annamarie Valletta is a local ceramics artist who fell in love with clay in high school. After college, she brought her passion home with a ceramics wheel. She spent four years teaching ceramics for all ages at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art.

KAY
(INSTRUCTOR)

Kay is a high school teacher-turned professional photographer with a healthy dose of art obsession. While the traditional education setting was not her ultimate love, this passion for teaching brought her to Pinch.

As an artist, Kay is most inspired by the impermanence of life and nature, seen through her linocuts, prints, and paintings. Her earthy pieces and life-like sculptural vases are the staple of her pottery shelves. Her work is a cozy mixture of raw clay, sgraffito carvings, and comforting colors.
