- Question: Can we take our pottery home with us?
Answer: Your pottery will be ready for pick up in 14 days. And If it’s completed earlier we will contact you. For your pottery to look shiny smooth glossy and food safe it must go through a process. First your pottery must dry thoroughly. Then it is dipped in a glazing solution, we call it our green slime. When that dries it is placed in the kiln ( our big red octagon oven ) where it remains for 24 hours and reaches 1800 degrees. When the oven cools down we unload the kiln which holds over 100 pieces of pottery then we wrap, package, and contact you by phone and / or email that your pottery is completed and ready for pick up.
- Question: How much does it cost?
Answer: We have over 600 pieces of pottery to choose from. The prices range from $6 to $60.

Answer: There are no other fees. The price of the pottery piece you choose includes painting, glazing, and firing. There is NO sitting fee, we encourage you to stay and create as long as you like.
