$12 for $24 Worth of Pottery Painting
Visitors choose from a wide array of pottery pieces ($3–$50 each)––including mugs, plates, and figurines––before embellishing their selected items, using brushes, stencils, and eco-friendly paints. Afterwards, a staff member glazes and fires finished pieces, which are available for pickup in less than a week. Studio time ($3–$9, depending on the size of the piece) covers all necessary materials, glazing, and firing.
The Pottery Studio
Harnessing a background in both art and education, The Pottery Studio's owner aims to create a community gathering space where kids and adults can channel their individual creative urges into decorative or functional pottery, tiles, and mosaics. Amateur artists can grab provided brushes, dip them in eco-friendly and water-soluble paints, and then coat clay in any of more than 60 hues. Idea books are on hand to help aid in the design as one maneuvers stencils and sponges across mugs and plates, or kids and pets can learn to create a lasting impression without super-gluing themselves to the garage door by making clay hand- or footprints. Once ready, the professional staff dips each earthenware masterpiece into a clear glaze, fires it inside a kiln, and readies it to be picked up within one week. The pro potters also encourage each visiting artisan to bring coffee and snacks, and during evening hours, bottles of wine can tag along to refill adults' juice boxes.
