This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.

Naked Plates Studios

Any time the doors are unlocked, the staff at Naked Plates Studios invites curious visitors to wander in and browse the vast inventory of raw—or naked—clay forms. Stacked deep on every shelf, the bleach-white pottery takes shape as simple plates or intricate statuettes of Einstein with perfectly teased hair. After selecting a piece, painters young and old can head over to browse the selection of glazes, which are lined up in a rainbow of hues. Once each piece has been painted, it's handed over to the staff, who glaze and fire it, ready to pick up in about a week.

More recently, the studio has also been home to canvas-painting classes. Setting up in front of a blank canvas, groups follow the step-by-step instructions of the teacher to complete a finished work of art. All materials are included in the cost of the class.

Customer Reviews

Had a great time! The only issue we ran into was, because we went the week before Xmas, a lot of their pottery choices and paints to use were gone.
