ClayLab Detroit was founded in 2002 on Grand River Avenue in downtown Detroit.  


Carrie Armstrong Reid, the company's owner and lead designer, was formally trained at College for Creative Studies in Detroit.  Though she uses many mediums to create functional and visual art work, clay is her #1. Husband Matt Reid is her partner and sponsor.


ClayLab Detroit's work has been seen in galleries, commercial properties and personal collections all over the world.


We have been a featured Studio Artist at the renowned Pewabic Pottery gallery in Detroit for over seven years. 


Locations past and present:

  • Art design for JPRA Architects, Farmington MI

  • CA Muer Big Fish restaurants throughout the country

  • American Museum of Ceramic Art, California

  • Detroit Artist Market, Detroit

  • Local hip craft shows, such as Detroit Urban Craft Fair and DIY Ferndale 

  • Pewabic Pottery, Detroit 


Our studio has moved from downtown Detroit to downtown Rochester, as we have personally moved north of there to the country for pet goats and chickens.  We proudly continue to serve the Greater Metropolitan Detroit area and beyond.
