Business Spotlight: Out of Step Clay

Out of Step Clay has become a beloved business on the Ridge at 38 corridor. Learn more about their story from owner, Josh Margolis. 

I started Out of Step Clay in April 2022 after 18 years of ceramic education in the San Francisco Bay Area. The goal with Out of Step Clay was to offer a space to build a community bases around creativity in clay. Our teaching model focuses on foundational skill building, allowing the artist to emerge over time. But our real goal as a mission based studio is to activate our community to have a positive impact on our greater Colorado community.

Another way is by choosing a yearly initiative to support. Our first year was making work with 100% of the proceeds going to the Colorado chapter of Moms Demand Action. And this year we are focused on supporting women’s reproductive rights. 

We offer wheel and handbuilding clay classes for adults 6 days a week, and afterschool kids handbuilding classes Tuesdays – Thursdays. For more information go to or send your questions to
