This mixed-media gallery space and nonprofit organization sells ceramic tableware produced by local youth ages 17 to 22. Founded in 1998 by Scott Sinclair, the program uses pottery to instill a sense of creativity and a work ethic in its students, who assist in all aspects of business, from product design and sculpting to marketing and customer relations. The organization relocated from the East Village to this whitewashed Soho studio in 2008, filling the walls with the work of local artists (for sale starting at $125). Bodanna’s unofficial canine mascot, Barney, greets visitors to the space—his paw print graces the inside of each of the ceramic dog bowls. The complete range of ceramic tableware and gifts is sold in on the Bodanna website, including colorful mugs, artistic serving platters, bowls, vases, teapots, and sake sets. All the production is done on-site: Twelve pottery wheels and a glazing station are stationed in the back of the gallery, and kilns and extra inventory are housed in the basement.Classes
Bodanna also offers nighttime classes for anyone interested in learning to make pottery.
