At Meg-Art Pottery, Inc., hardened clay takes the shape of more than 1,000 pieces of decorative pottery that visitors bring to life with kaleidoscopic splashes of color. Painters submerge their bristled wands into reservoirs of paint before adding personal touches to dishware ($15–$25), ornaments ($6–$20), piggy banks ($20–$30), and an aging statue of David hoping for a repainted six-pack. Once visitors finish daubing their ceramic masterworks, staff members immortalize each design with a kiln-fired glaze that renders pieces ready for pickup in 8–14 days, depending on artwork intricacy. The cartoon murals and multicolor mosaics that grace Meg-Art Pottery's walls inspire artistic genius as sunrays peer through expansive windows to view finished ceramics.

Adult and kiddie visitors embarking on new painting projects can look to the gregarious proprietors for guidance, and Sherry and Scott gladly will help them with each step of the painting process, from penciling in their patterns onto the bare clay, to turning their clay pieces into shiny new vases or uncontrollable living golems. Visitors can make their painting sessions even more relaxing with tasty drinks and desserts from the in-house espresso bar, which serves tea, milk shakes, and java from Counter Culture Coffee. After guests are done putting the finishing touches on their pottery, the helpful staff will fire pieces in a kiln for no extra charge, and each item is available for pickup in 7 - 8 days.
