Once you’re done painting, leave your masterpiece with our staff. We’ll glaze and fire the pottery in our kiln – at a whopping 1828 degrees! –  transforming it into a durable, food-safe, and vibrant ceramic piece. Your finished artwork will be ready for pick-up in about a week.





Can I paint at home? 


Yes! Most of our studios would happily wrap up a piece of your choice with some selected paints and brushes for an up-charge. You must use the provided paints if you wish to bring it back for firing. We use  underglazes as paints as they are specifically made for creating colorful ceramics.





Are your paints non-toxic?


All of our paints are non-toxic and water based. When your painted piece is glazed & fired, it becomes food-safe, dishwasher safe and microwave safe.





Do you have items for babies and toddlers?
