Paint Your Own Pottery
Step 1: Select a piece of pottery (also know as bisque). We have over 500 items to choose from functional pottery such as plates, bowls and mugs to picture frames and candle holders. And for children of all ages, we have figurines and a large assortment of banks.

Step 2: On your first visit, we will give you a brief orientation on how you layer the paints, where to find your supplies such as brushes, sponges, how to use the stamps, contact and transfer papers. We have idea books and photo albums for you to browse so you can stir your imagination.

Step 3: Choose your paints. We offer 40 undergazes, pottery glazes and puffy paints. Since we are a flat fee studio, you do not have to worry about how long you may stay to paint and or how many paints you may use. Just sit back, relax and enjoy time for yourself and your family.

Step 4: After you have finished painting, your painted pot will be dipped in a clear food-safe and non-toxic clear glaze giving your pot a clear glossy finish. It will be fired in our kiln for 16 hours and will be ready to be picked up in 5 to 7 days.

No appointment is necessary to paint pottery, bead a necklace or mosaic a picture frame. Here's what it costs:

Give The Gift of Art! The studio fee includes ALL MATERIALS, the final glazing and firing of your piece. Payment in full is required on day of painting. Your individually handcrafted pottery with their imperfections and slight slips of the artist's hand are what make them special.Your pottery is a gift from the kiln.

Mosaics
You have painted many masterpieces, maybe even have thrown a pot, but now let us help you become even more creative with mosaics.We have opened an entire mosaics department, that has everything you will need to make a variety of items, such as frames, mirrors, trivets, jewelry boxes and more.

Our studio will provide all types of tesserae including varieties of vitreous glass, stained glass, metallic gems and porcelain shaped tiles. It is an ancient and versatile art form that can transform any ordinary picture frame, mirror, vase, or dish into a beautiful work of art. All you have to do is come in any time create your own works of art.

Invite some friends and sit down for a couple of hours of fun and creativity. Bring some of your own tesserae such as sea shells, buttons, marbles or broken china.

Glass Fusion
Glass Fusion occurs when you join two or more layers of glass at a temperature between 1,100 and 1,700 to form one seamless piece. Once cooled, you can fire your glass again to slump your glass into a new shape. We have many molds for you to choose from to make a unique work of art for your home or the perfect gift.

You don’t have to go to Italy to discover the beautiful art of glass fusing. Artists 8 years and older can make a fused glass of art. It’s so simple to do and our staff will give you a brief tutorial. No experience is necessary.
