First, you will choose your piece of pottery. Then, decide which colors and imagination tools (like stencils and stamps) you will use to paint your beautiful, unique work of art.

When you are all finished, we will take it from there. The next step is to glaze and fire your finished art. Your completed piece will be dipped in a clear glaze and fired in an on-site kiln by one of our friendly, knowledgeable staff members. Leave it with us a few days, and we will notify you when your painted pottery is ready and available for pick up.
