Staring at a blank piece of paper can be intimidating, but browsing the blank, premade pottery at Doing Dishes draws hibernating creativity from its den, enticing the brain with shape, size, and bisque meat. Pieces range between $7 and $60, and all merry potters are assessed a modest studio fee of $6, which covers everything required to design and fire a project, including time. Grab a blank plate and paint a meal upon it, stencil a cup with springtime flowers, or decorate a picture frame worthy of being hung inside itself.
No matter what creative choices are made, the studio staff is standing by to assist artists of all ages and skill levels. They'll gladly help you start a project in the brave new world of glass fusion ($10–$60 for studio time and materials). Using a kiln process similar to pottery, glass fusing involves layering colorful glass to create one-of-a-kind designs, heightened by light and hindered by opera singers. This colorful technique is simple and accessible to artists of all plateaus.
At Doing Dishes, artists are welcome to stay as long as they need to complete their beauties. Once complete, pottery-handler staffers will put the finishing glazes, flames, and butterfly kisses on each project. They ask that anxious artists allow one week from their visit before returning to pick up their creations.
