pottery in san francisco area

Well, what the hell, everybody else in Berkeley is beating their own drum, I
might as well do it too. Marilyn, there are quite a few studios in Berkeley
which are open weekends and by appointment. Most are in the area bounded by
Gilman and Cedar streets (north to south) and Sixth street to Third street (east
to west). A couple more are a short distance away, and Leslie Ceramics, the bay
area's largest ceramic supply business is nearby also (the Toki family has
supplied generations of potters and sculptors, and the store houses a gallery
worth visiting) The reason this area deserves a look is because of the variety
and breadth of work available in an easily accessible and compact area. San
Francisco has far fewer studios, and they're spread out across the city.
We've recently had a map printed listing studios, types of work, hours,
phone numbers and addresses, so if you go to one studio in this west Berkeley
neighborhood, you can ask for a map, and take the tour of all of them. I'm at
