Pottery Painting

Create functional and beautiful art that is uniquely you...

How It Works:

Your first step is to choose from our huge selection of "naked" pottery.  We have everything from dinner plates to serving bowls, piggy banks to fairy boxes, travel mugs to teapots... the hardest part is figuring out what to paint! Once you choose your project, our staff will show you all the paints, glazes, stamps, stencils, idea books and tools at your disposal. Your job is to relax and enjoy the creative atmosphere of our studio. When you are done painting, leave your piece with us and we'll apply a clear glaze and fire it in our kiln. Your masterpiece will be ready for pickup in about 5 days.

Your finished masterpiece is a fully functional, food-safe piece of art that you can really use! Though your piece is dishwasher safe, hand washing is suggested to prolong the life of something so special.

Cost:

  • $8.00 flat fee all day ($7 for kids 12 and under), plus the pottery piece of your choice.
  • The Studio Fee includes all your paints, brushes, stamps, stencils, idea books, etc. Plus it also includes the glazing and firing of your piece!
  • Pottery prices range from $4.00 - $75.00, but most people find something they love for under $16.

Turnaround Time: 

We don't rush creativity, so you can take as much time as you'd like painting your project. Once you turn your masterpiece over to us, our turnaround time for the glazing and firing of your project is 5 days.
