The Studio

Morning is located in SE Portland in a 5000 sq.ft space complete with 2 bay doors, community kitchenette, restroom, and commercial sinks.



We want our members to be able to get going right away when they come to the studio. To help the creativity flow we have a comprehensive offering of tools and equipment ready for use.

Offerings include multiple potters wheels and handbuilding tables, clay extruder, slab roller, designated light & dark plaster wedging tables, and a glaze station stocked with a selection of community house glazes.

Our three Skutt 1227 kilns (lovingly named George, Mildred, and Dad Jr.!) are loaded by staff and fired regularly.
