There is a thin layer of clay coating every inch of this cozy corner in Merrill known as the Pottery Co-Op. That’s not to say that it is untidy though—the Co-Op is maintained and used by a myriad of members, who collectively own and operate this student-run organization. The facility, which was founded in 1970, features studios for throwing, building, and glazing ceramics, and membership is open to all current UCSC students.
