As both a makerspace and retailer, we offer support to ceramic artists of Baltimore in the form of studio space, and retail and exhibition opportunities. Many of the artists featured in our retail Shop make their work right here in Baltimore, and some even have their studios here on our campus. We currently have 46 artists making work out of our studios through our Residency, Mezzanine, Springboard, and Open Studio programs.
Made In Baltimore is a branding program for locally made products. They aim to spur re-investment in Baltimore City by growing the market for locally-produced goods and supporting the people who make them. They support local makers and manufacturers through a local-brand certification program, promotional and sales opportunities, print and media campaigns, special events and business development services, and advocacy for industrial use spaces. They seek to offer a unique and confident narrative of Baltimore City, illustrated by the diverse array of wonderful products being made here. As businesses in the manufacturing sector grow, and remain in Baltimore, surrounding neighborhoods flourish and thrive, offering living-wage employment and economic opportunities. They envision a Baltimore City that attracts and retains a diverse and unified community of makers and manufacturers, with equitable opportunities for growth and success.
