HOW IT WORKS
You pick out a ceramic, we seat you at a table then you use our brushes, glazes and tools to make your design come to life! We put your name and the year on the base of your artwork, dry it, apply a clear glaze, dry it again then and fire it in our kilns to 1835f.
This process takes about a week. The ready date is posted on our wall and will be on your reciept.
You may paint your pottery with our acrylics instead and take it home the same day.
