The do-it-yourself pottery studio fetes domestic decorators and partygoers alike with myriad ceramic and glass palettes on which to paint swirling images of artistic expression. Select your desired piece from a dizzying array of choices, and then begin to bedeck it with your own inimitable designs using a variety of non-toxic, lead-free paints. Bridal parties can embellish a 4"x6" picture frame ($28) ideal for containing wedding-day and cake-related memories, or adorn a 13-inch round-rimmed platter ($29) to support the weight of future cookies and mashed-potato busts of dinner guests. The large piggy bank ($24) adds some color to your nest egg, and a pair of coffee mugs ($32) are perfect for sharing side-by-side morning java sips with your early rising pet parakeet. Ornate window lovers can hop on the glass-fusing train, snagging a clear piece of 10-inch glass and affixing many-shaded glass bits to the transparent canvas in a design of their choosing. Wire is added before a kiln firing, and panes emerge as striking hangings for windows or gaping wall holes you’ve been meaning to garnish.
Most glass and mosaic pieces run $30 or under. The customized craft emporium boasts more than 600 pieces of paintable objects and more than 90 food-safe paint colors, ensuring dish users that their breakfasts won’t be assaulted by maniacal dyes with aspirations of ham domination. Magnum opuses are available for pick-up a week or less after their creation has been made.
