Inside the cozy Fired Up Paint Your Own Pottery Studio, guests adorn pre-fired bisques with colorful glazes applied with helpful stencils and freestyle-friendly brushes. Would-be artists peruse a variety of monochromatic figurines, selecting from items such as decorative tiles ($8–$12), wine goblets ($15), and coffee mugs ($12–$15). Once seated at a spacious wooden table, pottery painters delve into their all-day studio time ($8) and take advantage of unlimited access to pigmented glazes, sponges, idea books, and low-fives from staffers. After the glazing is complete, skilled kiln technicians fire customized pieces, making them ready for pickup within seven days of the initial session. Guests unable to finish pieces in one sitting can make a return trip to complete their works-in-progress for an additional $5.
Fired Up Paint Your Own Pottery Studio
The Devine family opened Fired Up Paint Your Own Pottery Studio to share their love of art with their community. Co-owner Orien, a painter himself, helms clay and painting classes, while his younger brother, Ayden, assists visitors in painting their own bisque pieces. Along with their other family members, the twosome instills the studio with a familial ambience not found outside of family reunions or goldfish funerals in the backyard.
