Firefly Valley Pottery Studio is an acre and a half of wooded property in the city limits of West Asheville. On Ona's property, there is a lot going on depending on the day or season. There is a private indoor studio space as well as a gorgeous outdoor pavilion overlooking the woods. Both indoor and outdoor studio space is available for rental.
It’s a community hub of sorts! We have community gardens, a trampoline, a wood-fired hot tub, a printmaking artist in residence in the backyard and more! My family and I live upstairs from the basement studio and are outside a lot. We might be in the backyard while you’re there creating in the pavilion or pass through the basement studio to grab tools or other things while you’re there. It’s a very relaxed, family environment. There is also a leased apartment beside the indoor studio.
