Hello friends- My husband and I will be visiting Phoenix and Sedona next week. While much of our time is already accounted for, I might have some time for clay inspiration. Do you have any "don't miss" gallery suggestions for me? Thanks in advance.

Try Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village, hwy 179 Sedona. It has several shops and galleries within reasonable walking distance. There were a lot of galleries along hwy 179 (entering from the south) with a mix of fine art, craft, and regional painters. Like you I was short of time and didn't come across any potters gallerie's or studios.
The drive through Red Rock State Park on hwy 179 was gorgeous.
We didn't check out the art scene in Phoenix.

One unusual thing happened when my husband and I were wondering through galleries in Sedona.
We were locked in a bronze gallery and couldn't exit. The gallery was part of a small 2 story art mall with maybe 5 separate galleries that had access entry off an interior walkway which is where we entered.
We looked around and began to notice that no one else was in the gallery, not even in the office.
We tried to leave by the same door we entered but it was locked and could not be unlocked from the
inside. There was another door facing the
street and it was also locked. There was no way of unlocking either door Which we thought was really
strange. After waiting and no one returned, we contemplated calling 911 but found a phone number on
some of the printed information available in the gallery. The owner/manager was out of town so he called the individual who was covering the gallery. He had gone to the post office.
Enjoy your trip!

If you want to see an amazing collection of SW indigenous pottery, the Heard Museum is fantastic. -In Phoenix. http://heard.org

The Ceramic Research Center is near the Phoenix airport if you're flying in and out.

I second both the Heard Museum and Tlaquepaque in Sedona, you'll see lots of lovely stuff in all three places.  The CRC had a Chinese Art opening there two weeks ago, not sure if it's still there, but some really cool pieces were there.

Have a great time, wish I could offer some hospitality, but I'll be at NCECA.  Be sure to bring light clothing, we're in the 90's in Phx.

Thank you all for your suggestions. We got home yesterday. Spent nearly all of our time hiking, son not much time for galleries on this trip after all. I appreciate your help!
