How It Works
Choose the bisqueware item you would like to paint, select your glaze colors, and paint your masterpiece! Once completed, pieces are dried, fired in the kiln, and packaged for pick-up. Paint, tools, and firing are included in the price of each bisqueware piece. Projects can be picked up approximately 2 weeks after completion.

Choose from more than 60 bisqueware pieces! Bisqueware items available in the studio rotate with the seasons. Custom ordering is available!

Park Circle Ceramics is located at 1103 Marquis Road in North Charleston. Situated in the bustling Park Circle neighborhood of North Charleston, the studio is just around the corner from Park Circle Gallery, as well as a number of restaurants, bars/breweries, shops, parks, and other amenities.

The public is welcome to come in and paint during open studio hours:
Tuesday-Thursday, 10am-7pm
Friday, 10am-2pm
Saturday, 12-4pm
PCC is closed Sunday-Monday.
