Artisan Masterpiece’s three-floor boutique and studio in the Carmel Arts & Design District houses a collection of clothing, accessories, and a full-fledged art studio. Patrons can peruse the bottom two floors of the retail boutique stocked with a variety of colorful giftware and stocking stuffers ($10–$75), such as fused glass, raku ceramics, and hand-painted lumps of coal. Customers may peruse the stocked store for framed paintings and prints or for functional artsy items, such as glass wine stoppers or wine bottle holders in shapes of characters, or check out the section dedicated to women’s fashion that includes upscale and casual tops, denim, sweaters, handbags, and jewelry ($30–$175 for clothing; $15–$75 for accessories and jewelry). Large pastel oil paintings composed exclusively by Hoosier artists and steel sculptures formed in Germany decorate the specialty shop, and guests may purchase any pieces of art bohemian outerwear they spy. The expert retailers curate a boutique collection to adorn homes, embellish closets, and ornament dull camping tents.
Bring a friend or three to the paint-your-own-pottery session on Saturdays or Sundays where students choose from more than 200 pieces of ceramic or bland Roman sculptures to decorate with vibrant glazes. This Groupon covers pieces up to $15, but customers can choose any that are higher priced but will have to pay the difference. Painting patrons can treat their taste buds to food and non-alcoholic drinks brought from home, while ears stay occupied with music and hands adorn each curve and crevice of their ceramic. Experienced staff then glaze and fire each finished piece before cloaking baubles in new-car scent and returning them to their creators four days after class.
