How it Works

Choose a piece from our wide selection of either bisque or greenware items. We have plates,  plaques, banks, figurines, boxes, vases, cups and more... You  can even order a piece if we do not  have what you are looking for on our shelves. We do pour some of our own molds and we  have  vintage molds as well. So you just never know what you will  find in our selection.
We encourage you to browse through our magazines and fliers to get ideas for your plates,  platters, vases and tiles making it a masterpiece of your own. We can show you different  techniques with brushes, stamps, stencils and more.
We have a large selections of glazes, or you can just paint with acrylics the choice is up to you.  Our glazes are food safe and dishwasher friendly for your utility piece. They are all water based  and wash off of hands and clothes, however we do provide aprons if requested for adults and  children.
Paint it the way you want it! We are always here to help you with tips and advice.GLAZE AND  FIRE We use MAYCO glazes that work great in our studio. This is great for smaller pieces,  however we recommend that if the piece is a utility piece or larger that 6" in height that we dip clear glaze and let it sit overnight before firing it in our kiln.
We will let you know when it will be ready for pick-up. Once fired, you masterpiece, and if treated   like fine china, will last a lifetime!
Clay Building Workshops offered at the studio
We are offering Clay Workshops at the studio. Sign up sheets are located in the  front of the studio. We try and keep a theme for each workshop. ie.. valentines, think  green, christmas, easter and so forth.
These workshops are great for anyone at any age and is wonderful for homeschoolers as well.

We have Ceramics Class and also Wheel Throwing. Work with moist clay products.

We offer onsite afterschool CLAY BUILDING WORKSHOPS, these workshops run 4 weeks at a time. We work with your child by provide him/her with a clay project. These workshops are designed to get hands on experience in working with clay. The clay at times, come pre-cut,then they learn how to piece it together using slip and tools which we provide. Some projects made are as follows: boxes, chimes, & pinch pots. 
After the project is built, they glaze it and if needed assemble the project.
Depending on the project, stuents will then learn how to the roll out the clay and  properly  handle the clay for firing. We do not work with polymar clay, the clay we use (firing clay only) will be fired in a kiln at our studio and brought back to them the following week so they can glaze there project and again it will be returned to them the next week with a finished project. (some projects may require some instructional assembly which will be done under our supervision.)

We offer fused glass & Mosaic Classes  With short fused class all supplies are included with the exception of the E6000 glue, and you go home with two finished pieces (pendants).  The class lasts from 2 1/2 hours to 3. There are three ways to sign up and reserve a spot for this class: Call, email me, or stop on in and sign up on the sheet posted in the front of the store. The class is $45.00 plus tax,  and well worth the money.
