Dana Point Harbor is pleased to announce the opening of Still Life Ceramics pop-up shop. Located next to iHeartYoga, the ceramics studio and pop-up shop features handmade ceramics from local artists and hosts classes and workshops open to beginner and professional potters alike.

"We are excited to welcome Still Life Ceramics to the Dana Point Harbor community," said Bryon Ward of Dana Point Harbor Partners and President of Burnham Ward Properties. "The artisanal handcrafted product and the creative spirit of their brand fits perfectly into the DNA of Dana Point and they are a great addition to our tenant mix at the Harbor."

A Los Angeles-based brand, Still Life Ceramics at Dana Point Harbor marks the first location in Orange County. The new studio will officially open on September 23 for pottery classes and shopping. A variety of classes will be available Wednesday-Saturday at 4 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. for beginners, experienced potters, and kids, including the popular "Rosé & Clay" class where participants are invited to enjoy a free glass of rosé at The Harbor Grill Restaurant following the class. Classes and retail shopping will operate at a limited capacity in alignment with current safety protocols and masks will be required.

"We are looking forward to sharing our passion with Dana Point locals and visitors," said Still Life Ceramics co-founders Mel Keedle and Ana Henton. "Still Life Ceramics offers a variety of classes for all skill levels including online and in-person classes, so there's something for everyone."

Classes can be booked online here, and are expected to sell out. Retail shopping hours will be available before and after each class.

Dana Point Harbor Partners remains committed to the health and wellness of Harbor guests, employees, and the community. Directional signage has been placed throughout the Harbor to promote physical distancing, hand sanitizer stations have been installed, and cleaning and sanitation has increased in all common areas and restrooms throughout the Harbor.
