At Clay Casa, patrons create their own original works of art, whether they're vibrant pieces of painted pottery or gemlike mosaics and fused-glass pieces. For the pottery option, guests can choose from hundreds of unglazed bisque pieces to decorate with their choice of more than 60 nontoxic glazes. Sponges, stamps, and stencils are on hand to help them add pattern and texture to mugs, bowls, or colorful plates that make great gifts for friends who just learned to eat off dishes. Fused-glass and mosaic projects can result in trivets, coasters, crosses, and other brightly colored pieces. Clay Casa also ups the ante with regular special events, including a once-monthly Ladies' Night at their recently opened New Braunfels location. This location also offers glass-fusing sessions, but only for groups of eight or more with an advance reservation.
