Clay Cafe Studios - About Us

Clay Cafe Studios is a family-owned and operated business established in 1997. The Falls Church location's grand opening was in April, 1988. The owner, Helene Safford, is an artist and musician with a background in technology, business and finance.

Clay Cafe Studio’s Mission is to provide innovative, practical and top-quality products that improve the way people spend leisure time. We believe our first responsibility is to the community of dual income workers and their families who use our products. In carrying out our day-to-day business we strive to:

  • Treat our employees with respect and provide them with a flexible work atmosphere.
  • Follow the philosophy that our customers are important to us.
  • Be considered as a promoter of ceramic studio businesses and an asset in our community.

Clay Cafe has become an integral part of the greater Falls Church community and actively engages in many community efforts to bring art and creative activities to our customers. What makes us different is our special attention to customer service. We want everyone that walks through our door to feel at home. Cultivating long-term relationships with our customers is very important to us. From explaining the process, teaching techniques or helping with special projects, we want our customers to feel valued and appreciated.

Clay Cafe offers a variety of products and activities such as walk-in pottery painting and glass fusing, a venue for birthday parties, special occasions, bridal events, mom's groups, and corporate team building, after-school art enrichment programs and one of the area's premier summer art camp for kids ages 6 and up. No experience is necessary for any of our activities. Experienced staff will assist you and help make your time with us leisurely and rewarding.
