Art teacher opens local studio with husband

The studio has lots of room to spread out and plenty of wheels for throwing.

Tucked away in Magnolia, surrounded by towering trees, newly opened Woodland Lane Ceramics offers classes for beginners and masters, as well as workshops for fellow local artists.

TWHS ceramics teacher Kinsey Lanecs, 3D design, and digital art, built the art studio from the ground up. She always wanted to own an art studio where she could collaborate and share with other artists.

“There aren’t a lot of pottery places in The Woodlands,” Lane said.

She wanted a space that was welcoming to all kinds of people and a catalyst for creativity. When COVID-19 struck, Lane and her husband decided to take the opportunity to start their year and half long project.

“My husband teaches art workshops and travels all around the US and we wanted a local place and make it (the studio) both drawing and ceramics,” Lane said.

With all the free time quarantine brought, Lane and her husband Jesse, also a renowned artist, bought a plot of land and began construction with the help of her parents and husband.

It was a natural evolution for the artist team to continue their artwork in the form of a studio. Mrs. Lane actually designed her own light fixtures that can be found all along the studio. The studio features nine wheels, a kiln, and rooms for pottery storage as well as a cute, cozy loft overlooking the space.

If you’re interested or know anyone who is interested in learning ceramics, the Woodlane Lane Ceramics opens 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. from Tuesday to Friday and opens 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays.

Class details and options can be found on their website link and photographs of their work can be followed on their instagram.
