Pottery Painting in York, Pennsylvania

About Us

We offer a contemporary paint your own pottery experience as well as the opportunity to make warm glass projects of all kinds for people of all ages! We carry a full line of bisque figurines, (Snoopy, Hello Kitty, Marvel Heroes) banks, boxes, home decor, useful kitchenware and novelty items for you to chose from to paint. Our glazes are food safe, and non-toxic so you may use your fired mugs, bowls or plates with the confidence that they are safe for use with food. Our glass offerings include frit pendants, glass and dichroic glass jewelry, windchimes, suncatchers, nightlights, decorative vases, plates and almost anything else you can imagine.


How It Works

Pottery painting: Prices are all inclusive, which means you do not pay a studio or other fee for creating something in our studio. The price on the bottom of the piece plus sales tax is your cost. We will help you with color selection and planning and executing your project as well as helping you with some special techniques. A week later your fired piece is ready for pickup.

Glass: GLASS IS SHARP (yes, we know you knew that!) so we have to be very careful who uses it and when it is used in the studio. Because glass requires special handling and precautions its use in the studio is restricted to certain days and times (at present NO Saturdays or Sundays). In order to make a project on their own in the studio, customers must first attend at least one Glass Workshop or be instructed individually by a staff member in its safe use. Children under 10 may only use glass if a parent or other adult remains with them. We will provide you with goggles, gloves and any other tools needed to have a safe glassmaking experience. Finished glass projects are usually ready for pickup in a week.


No Studio Fees!

The price on the piece you select is the price you pay (plus sales tax). You are not charged extra for glazing, use of brushes or firing. We are a walk-in studio so you can come in anytime without a reservation to paint.
