Molding Futures Out of Clay

The goal of my ArtFund is to bring general art classes and knowledge back into public schools because I feel that every child is an artist in some shape or form. Underprivileged youth in New York City are given this opportunity through a non-profit organization called Bodanna.

Located on Broome Street, Bodanna has internships, apprenticeships, and classes that aim in assisting youth in starting successful lives throughout NYC. While participating in the apprenticeships, the students learn to design and create amazing pottery which is then sold in their studio.

By visiting the studio or shopping online you can buy presents for the holidays while supporting this great foundation. Since the holidays are a time to celebrate with your family and friends at home, your new handcrafted servingware will be the talk of your party! This December, give the gift of Bodanna pottery and help out a great organization as well.
