Elena Sonnenfeld is the Assistant Director of Clayhouse Brooklyn and is also an instructor. Her love for ceramics translates into her dedication for teaching, managing the inner workings of the studio, and studio development. Elena began wheel throwing when she was seven years old and has continued throughout her whole life. Graduating from Pratt with a focus on accessible design, she brings the idea of individualizing the ceramics process for every body to both her classes and the studio. Within her own practice she incorporates ideas of accessibility and inclusion for the users of her pieces. Elena loves helping her students find their own unique way to achieve their ceramics goals.
