Meet the amazing team of Cornell Studio Supply! A knowledgeable, resourceful, supportive, and talented trio . . .
Or at least we think so!
Erin is the owner of Cornell Studio Supply. She has been working in clay for over 15 years and worked as a full time cone 6 electric studio potter from 2005 until 2011 when she took over the shop. Since then Erin has been teaching her made skills in the shop and using her connections to bring amazing workshops to the area. She understands what quality service is and what to expect out of your clay supplier. She spent 5 years, three hours away from her closest supplier, while living in Texas with her husband. She learned that internet shopping was convenient, but when it came to technical support, it was the independent small businesses that always had a real person with an answer. This is what Erin strives to do — have a supportive friendly face and the knowledge to get you going in the direction you want with your work. Erin knows Cornell Studio Supply is a valuable asset to the Miami Valley area and strives to give the best support you need to succeed in the ceramic world!
Lynn is the friendly face behind the counter at Cornell. Lynn is proficient in cone 10 gas firing, cone 6 electric, and her experience in wood firing is building. (She has managed the All Womens Woodfiring which is AWESOME!) She creates her work in her home studio and teaches basic wheel throwing here at the shop. Her decoration techniques are to kiln for and she offers a class in this once a year. She enjoys a good laugh and knows how to tell a tale. Trust that your clay needs will be met with the attention you expect and deserve while on the phone or in person with Lynn!
Dustin is the well known delivery guy, who earned his Ceramic degree from Alfred University (the top ceramic school in the nation mind you!). He is also trained to take care of all the equipment found in a ceramic studio. Quite he may be, but massive volume pots he creates. Dustin travels all around the country selling his wares to top notch galleries and collectors of fine pottery. His expertise is soda fired cone 10 but taught Ceramics at a local art magnet school for many years, so his knowledge is a plenty! You will likely find Dustin teaching his large forms in the studio, up to his waist in a kiln repair, or hauling clay around the Miami Valley Area!
Whatever it is, Erin and her team hope to help you take the leap to overcome, learn, and extend to your fullest pottery potential!
