Centered on the art of ceramics and clay, Yonkers Peace Pottery Studio, located in the vibrant Park Hill neighborhood on McLean Avenue, is a community pottery craft center and school serving the lower Hudson River Valley and Westchester County, Riverdale, Bronx, and northern Manhattan, New York City.

Encouraging a warm and relaxed environment to inspire creativity, community, and regard for art and fine handcrafts, we offer a full roster of handbuilding, sculpture, wheel throwing classes for beginner to advanced students, as well as pottery birthday parties (for children and adults), corporate team building sessions, special topic workshops, adult socials, and studio space rental for experienced clay artists.

Our storefront shop is stocked with fine handmade stoneware and porcelain home decor, garden, jewelry goods and gifts, and other unique handcrafts from local artisans, like natural soaps and carved wood serving utensils.

Who We Are:
Yonkers Peace Pottery Studio is owned and managed by Cori Morenberg, a local resident and avid and long-time potter who loves sharing her clay passion with others while fostering and being part of a supportive and dynamic creative community.
Her personal clay website is

Why Yonkers Peace Pottery? What does "Peace" have to do with anything?

Cori believes in the idea that "Happy hands make happy hearts," something she heard or read once. She continually experiences clay softening her and knows that keeping ones hands busy, making useful, beautiful objects, keeps her out of trouble. Like all of nature, clay has much to teach us:

“Markings in dry clay disappear
Only when the clay is soft again.
Scars upon the self disappear
Only when one becomes soft within.”
