SERVICES

How It Works

YOU CHOOSE YOUR PIECE

First, you’ll need to choose which item you’d like to paint and decorate.  We have a wide range of pieces to choose from, and our prices include your piece, paint, glazing, and firing.

YOU PAINT YOUR PIECE

This is the part where you let your creativity run wild! Our helpful staff will go over the basics of painting pottery and offer any assistance you may need along the way.

WE FIRE
YOUR PIECE

All the ceramic pieces painted in our studio are dipped in clear glaze and fired in one of our kilns, assuring your pieces will be beautiful and food-safe.

YOU PICK-UP YOUR PIECE

Because of the dipping and firing phases of the process, your pieces may take up to 1-2 weeks to return to you.  Please keep this in mind when planning your visit and also when planning your gift-giving.

ABOUT US
CLIENTS

YOU'RE PROBABLY WONDERING...

  • How long does it take to create?
    It’s up to you! Some painters stay for hours designing and painting their work. Others, including small children, are finished quickly. Most adults average one hour, kids – a little less. It all depends on the piece you select, your design, how detailed you are, and how much time you have. You are welcome to paint for as long as you like. If you are not able to finish in one sitting, no problem. Just pay for your piece, then take your piece home, and return anytime to complete the project.
  • Do You Offer Classes?
    We're not your typical pottery studio – we're a place where you paint and create your pottery masterpieces on your own terms. We don't offer classes because we believe in the power of hands-on exploration. Dive right in, pick up a brush, and let your imagination run wild. Practice truly makes perfect!
  • Will my piece be food safe?
    We offer non-toxic paints and glazes of the highest quality. Finished pottery pieces are food safe after firing. They are also “technically” microwave and dishwasher safe. However, we don’t recommend putting them in the latter because the severe temperature changes can cause glaze crackling — and then they are no longer food safe.
  • Do I need a reservation?
    Walk-ins are always welcome! You are not required to make a reservation, but if you are planning on a gathering, it would be helpful to ensure that we have a space ready for you.
