Since Clay Dreams opened in 1999, studio owner and ceramics specialist Rose Mary Ardagna has placed one penny in every single piggy bank her guests take home. It helps get kids' savings started, she explains, but this isn't the only lasting impression she hopes to leave on their lives; at Clay Dreams, she shares her passion with anyone brave enough to pick up a brush, inspiring the creativity in every guest.
Rows upon rows of piggy banks, figurines, and dishes beckon brushes, and after a guest thoroughly slathers a piece in color, Ardagna dips it in glaze and fires it in the kiln. The kiln makes colors brighter, creates a glossy look, and melts any snowflakes obscuring the design. Walk-ins are welcome.
A destination for amateur crafters and professional mosaic artists, Mosaic Oasis Studio & Supply both teaches the centuries-old art and stocks the tools and materials with which to create mosaics. Beginners can enroll in the "taster" class, where they'll learn of the techniques, styles, and tips for creating ready-to-hang art. More specialized classes focus on styles such as Byzantine art, and all workshops and sessions are led by the studio's owners and on-site master mosaic artists.
