Alexis Feldheim opened Kingston Ceramic Studio in April of 2017 in Kingston's Midtown Arts District's Shirt Factory. With degrees in education and ceramics, experience in ceramic studio management, and an active ceramic practice of her own, Lex had all the skills necessary to make KCS the successful studio it has become.
Enthusiastically supported by a community eager to get their hands in clay, KCS doubled its space within a year! Further expansion happened just as Covid got serious and Lex had to close the door for four months. Lex rearranged the studio and created new policies to provide a safe environment for KCS's reopening in July of 2020. Since then the studio has continued to grow.
When asked why she opened KCS, Lex said, "Because I love ceramics, teaching, and being part of a community. I've lived in Kingston since 2010, and love this city because of its creative community and beautiful surroundings in the Hudson Valley."
