At Clay Casa, hundreds of unpainted ceramic figurines wait to be finished with more than 60 kinds of glaze—and they’re not the only things waiting in the shop's wings. In addition to paint-your-own ceramics, Clay Casa houses empty mosaic shapes and varieties of glittering glass and gems that can be combined and recombined to create sparkling tesserae. If that doesn’t satisfy artistic urges, visitors can fuse glass for make-your-own votives, bowls, or luxury thimbles. Instructors also hold instructional glass-cutting classes on more involved projects such as vases and bowls.
