Welcome to the Full Moon Studio & Gallery, and home of the Original Pawprints

ceramic pawprint with photo, handprint, name and year in fine china clayHedy and Ross Hale inside their pottery studio gallery in Morro Bay California working on their original clay sculptures. Pottery classes are offered in Morro Bay, CA.In 1974, we arrived in the seaside village of Morro Bay, California with a plan to open a working pottery studio and gallery. Ross had been working in clay since 1967 and Hedy, since 1970. We found a defunct laundromat which was perfect for a pottery studio. It took lots of elbow grease, but we were on our way.

Today, we are active members in SLO county's art community. Ross previously taught ceramics at Cuesta College and through San Luis Obispo Adult Education. We, both, participate in Career Day demos at local high schools and volunteer teaching ceramics at Morro Elementary School. Students began asking for private lessons. The demand became so great that we started offering evening pottery classes at the Full Moon Studio in Morro Bay, California.

hedy and ross instruct pottery classes in their pottery studio on the central coast of californiaWorking in clay became our life, and we were determined to be successful. We filled our gallery with our sculptures and functional art by local artists on the Central Coast. Then, the Original Pawprints were born. These ceramic impressions of hands and feet have brought customers back because they are the perfect gifts for family and friends. So perfect, in fact, that local groups and schools use them for FUNdraisers! We have clients who have returned so often that they have, literally, become friends. Some clients travel long miles to have ceramic prints taken at the Full Moon because of our reputation for quality. We like what we do, and we take pride in doing it. (If you live outside of our home area, you could be trained to do ceramic impressions of hands and feet!)

Again, welcome to our studio and gallery,

Ross and Hedy Hale
