With the aid of PaintMe Pottery Studio’s accomplished artisans, guests conjure personalized works from clay or brush coats onto premade dishes and sculptures to round out home décor. A pound of shapeless clay evolves into platters, vases, and mugs as participants follow helpful hints from watchful instructors or the ghosts of shattered piggy banks. In addition to materials, students receive tools and paints to bring their ideas into fully realized, three-dimensional existence. Each attendee then uses a single session in the fiery kiln to transform projects from soft clay to firm pottery or silly putty into serious putty. PaintMe puts no time limit on the 12-person session in order to ensure that creativity flourishes without constraint.
Additionally, visitors may purchase premade dishes and baubles from PaintMe’s selection to emblazon with any image they can conceive. Small animal figurines ($10) hold poses against a backdrop of mountains and trees painted upon designer dishes ($25–$40), and a variety of lockets, beads, and tiles ($5 each) fill pockets with portable pottery. Steaming cups of green tea keep artists company upon request, piping with smoke-signal suggestions of what color to choose.
