Make a reservation...even if it's on a weekday. during our visit many arrived without one and it was a challenge for the attendants to seat them all. Reservations just makes it easier for everyone.

Arrive a couple of hours before closing time to allow dry time in between coats

It's not a cheap place to go. Even with the groupon you have to spend some extra money and it is not little.

Reserve in advance and the prices start at $10.50 for a small item and up...expect about $20.00 for a nice, average item. Great variety!

This was a fun experience. My cousin was visiting from Chicago, so I thought this would be a fun event! It was! The Groupon was a great value and deal as well! The workers could have given more instructions on how everything worked initially and how the process worked. But it was not hard to figure out and I would definitely recommend this place...it would be a great family affair or even for a date.

The studio on Voss Rd appeared to be closed due to construction so we went to the West Gray studio which could be very busy on Saturdays. We just happened to go on a Sunday which turned out to be a great day to go.

For Meredith McCord, looking at a piece of pottery brings back decades worth of memories. McCord started The Mad Potter in 1998, and since those early days, she's used her kiln to immortalize countless special moments. She traveled to hospitals to capture the footprints of newborns, helped a young man create a dessert plate with the words "Will you marry me?" emblazoned across it, and auctioned off items for charity. Yet some of her fondest memories center on the day-to-day interactions with customers, specifically when they return to pick up their fired pieces and utter three words of amazement: "I did that?"

The Mad Potter has since expanded into three Houston-area locations, where children and adults come to paint their own works of art or create replicas of their ancient ancestors' garden gnomes. More than 500 bisqueware items line the shelves of each studio, including coffee mugs, plates, and figurines. Staffers then help visitors select from more than 54 available colors of paint and supply them with everything else they might need, including brushes and stencils. The staff can even take things over and create more intricate designs—while still consulting closely with the customer. Whatever route a person chooses, there's always time for a sip of wine or beer; the River Oaks location sells wine and beer while Bellaire and Woodway maintain a BYOB policy.
