Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, all finished pieces are both microwave and dishwasher safe, although just like most dishware, hand washing is recommended.

Items are ready to pick up the next week’s Saturday. After items are painted, they are all dipped in a clear glaze and then fired in one of our kilns. The actual firing process takes about 30 hours start to finish.

No, we are mainly open for walk-in painting during normal business hours. We do not allow new painters 1/2 hour before closing. We fill tables on a first- come, first-served basis and are not currently accepting reservations. We do have a reservable party room for large groups.

We only fire in-house painted items. Our glazes/paints are are specifically designed to work with our kilns and products. Once items leave and are glazed/painted outside our store and control, there is a risk of the paint/glaze being incompatible with our process and may damage our kilns and/or customers pieces

All of our products are ordered in. In the future we hope to add more hands on products and processes.
