MIY Ceramics and Glass Studio Celebrates Grand Opening in West Hollywood
After 17 years sharing the joy of art and creativity through clay and glass MIY proudly has a forever home! The grand opening was a happy occasion, brimming with support from the local ceramics and arts community, MIY team members, and friends. We enjoyed a heartwarming ribbon-cutting ceremony, marking the beginning of a new era for the studio. We hosted our first outdoor Artisan Market, hosted all sorts of demonstrations, a kids table where kids got to play with clay and take home their project, had a hands on pop up pottery class for those present, lots of studio tours, and raffles.
We are very grateful for the generosity and support we received throughout the day.
The grand opening was a testament to the power of community and collaboration. The event garnered support from the local ceramicists and artists community, reaffirming the studio's significance as a creative hub in Hollywood Florida. The presence of passionate individuals who share a love for art, ceramics, mosaics and glass underscored the tight-knit community that MIY has cultivated over the years.
The Outdoor Artisan Market: Added lot's of excitement of the grand opening. We are grateful for everyone who participated, several were first timers! I am happy to say they got to sell their work and get some recognition for their talent. This market was a showcase of artistic talent and craftsmanship, providing a platform for local artisans to display their exceptional creations. Visitors were treated to a diverse range of artistic mediums like ceramics, wood working, jewelry crafting, hand drawn illustrations and much more! Despite it being a very warm Spring day everyone enjoyed interacting with the community and visitors got to take home some unique finds.
