A local ceramics studio is celebrating one year of pottery today.

The Muddy Waters clay center first opened its doors one year ago with only a couple pottery wheels.

Now they have more than a dozen pottery wheels and their own hand-built kiln.

Local attorney Al Boucher says the center would not have been possible if not for generous donations and grant money.

He also says the arts are important to any community.

"there are new people who come into the community, they say, I didn't know we had this kind of place. This really makes it worth living here and I think hopefully other arts groups are going to be able to do the same," Boucher said.

The clay center will be open again tomorrow.

They'll also be signing people up for the next round of pottery classes starting in January.
