We are a Contemporary "Paint Your Own Pottery Studio" and offer one the largest selection of pottery in the area, ranging from holiday items to kitchenware. We also have a fun & creative KIDZ KORNER, for boys & girls! There is something for ALL AGES to paint. To assist you in creating and designing that special ceramics piece, we have stencils, stamps, silkscreens, idea books and other items to assist you in letting your imagination run freely. Once you paint your piece, we glaze and fire it. Your art is ready for pick up in 7 days. If you paint with the underglaze paints, once glazed and fired it is food safe, dishwasher safe and low microwave safe! Although, we suggest you wash it by hand for longevity.
WE ALSO OFFER Acrylic Paints, after being sprayed with a sealant, & can take home same day.
WE ARE AN ALL INCLUSI VE STUDIO AND DO NOT HAVE HOURLY FEES as other studios do. The price on the bottom of the piece is the only price you pay, (except for some specialty paints which are extra), which includes the piece, the glazing and the firing.
