Hi, my name is Amy Manson. I am the owner of Leesburg, Virginia's woman owned business, The Clay and Metal Loft. I am an arts instructor, potter and gallery manager. My family and I have lived in Leesburg, for 11 years and I have been teaching and creating throughout Loudoun for the same time period. The Clay and Metal Loft has been my latest creation: a community gathering space for creativity. The Clay and Metal Loft is a Leesburg destination location drawing patrons from throughout Northern Virginia and beyond.
