After meeting every Tuesday since 2016 and getting offers to make plates and bowls for local diners and restaurants, Heritage’s Clay Club is working their butts off to get things done.They are even changing their meetings from every Tuesday to every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, even over break.

Clay club at Heritage is a student run group compiled of ceramics students who enjoy making things after school. The club is supervised by Mrs. Shokrai who is one of the ceramic teacher’s on campus, but the group is led by seniors Lindsay Bush and Maddy Alvis.

The offer came from the new coming 4 star restaurant, Attraversiamo which is an Italian steakhouse, in The Streets of Brentwood. They have to make over 300 of plates along with many bowls for this new place.

“The restaurant wants a continued relationship with the school and club so they came to us, a part of the community. There is a four star chef designing their menu. It’s gonna be a really great restaurant. They’re trying to bring San Francisco to Brentwood,” said Shokrai.

The group is trying to expand to all clay and ceramic lovers so that they can do more and perhaps get more commissions done if they have more members.

“I want to bring as many kids as I can into this club because it’s a lot of fun. Last year I started clay club since student always stayed after school. This year Abby Jeans (12) wrote the constitution for clay club so it became a real thing,” said Shokrai.

This club is hardcore when participating and creating things for the commission. The leaders of the clay club plan goals every week to hit.

“I run another club, community service type stuff, so leadership has just transferred over to this group. At least ten hours of my own time (unscheduled and everything) I’m in here almost every single day,” said Alvis.

While the commission is not the most difficult, it is the amount of what the order consists of makes that a tad difficult.

“Plates are easy to make. The actual throwing is easy but the maintenance is so difficult because of time,” said Alvis.

Some students originally joined the club to just do their class work after school to get it done, but Lexi Tomicich (11) fell in love with the medium of clay.

“ I finally came to clay club and it’s a community and everyone helps you and it’s great to get helpful tips and learn brand new things that I wouldn’t have learned before then,” said Tomicich “You have a lot of people that care about clay here. People are really committed and it’s really helpful and nice.”

Clay club at Heritage is a great way to relax and spend some time to yourself in a good environment with plenty of fun and joy.
