How it Works

You receive a bag of clay that will allow you to make one or two (maybe more depending on your creativity!) pieces. You build the clay piece! Leave the piece(s) with us. We will let it dry thoroughly and fire it into a ceramic bisque piece.

In 2-3 weeks, we will call you to come in and paint your fired piece. After it is glazed, we will fire it again. If you have made something that will hold food, it will be food safe and washable after the second firing. After firing we will call you for pick up and you have a wonderful piece or two to take home and enjoy!!!

*Please note this is a handbuilding project not using the pottery wheels.
