Our Story

Aura Pottery was started in 2016 and visualized as a ceramic studio that would someday be buzzing with people who love to learn and practice pottery. What started with a lone potter’s wheel and a bag of clay, evolved into a fun, creative space that offers visitors the opportunity to discover, learn and express.
