Pottery Works is stocked with a staggering collection of more than 500 unpainted pieces awaiting brush-wielding hands to enliven them with vibrant glazes and paints. Amid the purple walls of the open, expansive studio, adult-and-child duos select uncolored trinkets from the shelves and then, like an artist in ancient Rome, re-envision the featureless pieces with bold colors, luminous golds, and missing arms. Equipped with stencils, stamps, and brushes, kid-parent teams artfully accent plates, tiles, or their clothing with color combinations cultivated from more than 75 glazes.
Once pieces are saturated in the lead-free and food-safe pigmentation to the pair's content, the experienced staff fires the handiworks in kilns and finishes them with a shiny, clear glaze. After seven anticipation-building days, craftsmen can pick up their mini masterpieces, which will be ready to grace tabletops, adorn mantels, or transport ambrosia.
