Bisque PotteryHOW IT WORKS

1. Stop in and choose a piece of bisque pottery from the shelf.

2. Plan your design. You don't have to be an artist! We've made it easy for you. We have idea books, stamps, stencils, and carbon paper. Pencil disappears during the firing process, so you can draw a design. We also have lots of samples that might spark some inspiration.

Your Masterpiece3. Pick your colors. We have over 50 colors of non-toxic, water based paints. Don't worry MOM, it washes out! We also have a variety of "Bumpy" paints. They are great to write names or create dots and squiggles that are raised. Paint your piece!

Now it's our turn! We dip your piece in a clear glaze. Once it dries, we load it into one of our huge kilns. It fires for 8 hours to 1,850 degrees. It takes about 8 hours for the kiln to cool. Your masterpiece is ready for you in 1 week.

We will happily open for any groups wishing to paint later than our normally scheduled hours.
Just call us with a date and time!
