Legalize Pottery is a one-woman studio established by Linnell Heinbockel, located on the peninsula of the San Francisco Bay Area, in San Carlos, California. The studio is equipped with two antique workbenches, electric wheel, extruder, sink and lots of shelving. Located above the studio is the Duncan electric kiln.

The Studio was created from storage space in 2011. Beforehand, the low ceiling precluded standing up in the space.  The photos below show the transformation — removing the floor, digging out a ton of dirt, pouring concrete supports and floor, installing 2 windows and a full-size door, adding electrical and water.  Voila, a studio!


The studio’s antique workbenches have been in the family for generations.Antique Workbenches
