Interaction with The CAV Community
There is no formal structure by design of contact outside of formal taught classes. Artists are provided with keys and may choose to work when they find it most advantageous. Artists are expected to be open to the questions of Clay Arts Vegas students and artists. While at the studio guest artists enjoy ample contact with people working at all levels in ceramics. We strongly believe that Clay Arts Vegas is a community built on diversity and every person working in the studio is a peer to learn, share, and enjoy.
Works Created During the Residency
Aside from the piece selected for the permanent collection, works created during the residency are the property of the artist. All work created over the course of the residency may be shipped to the artist at their own expense. Work left for sale with the Gallery or Shop shall become the property of Clay Arts Vegas or will be returned to the artist at their expense after one year. The Clay Arts Vegas retains 40% of any works it sells for guest artists. Shipping arrangements must be made prior to the end of the residency.
