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.

To plan your visit and get the most out of your experience, please allow at least an hour and half to two hours. No reservations or appointment needed.  The studio is first come first serve – during peak hours and holidays there can sometimes be a wait.  Please note that we do NOT accept walk-ins one hour before close.

Choose from more than 400 bisqueware pieces! Bisqueware items available in the studio rotate with the seasons. Custom ordering is available!
