Ceramics/Pottery Painting

Our Ceramics are made with white earthenware clay; you may better know ceramics as pottery. They are painted with specialist ceramic paints referred to as underglaze then we paint over with a clear gloss glaze before they are placed into a very hot oven called the kiln which beautifully melts the glazes on to the pieces. The colours of the paint also turn from a pale subdued colour to a vibrant spectacle. Sounds a little complicated? Don’t worry! We will guide you along the way and provide everything you need, simply choose your ceramics (ranging from all sorts of mugs, cups, bowls, serving dishes, vases, keepsake boxes, money boxes, decorative figures and so much more), we provide the special ceramic paints and a guide, leave your piece with us for about a week so we can glaze and fire it in the kiln then we send you a text message when it’s ready for pick up and that’s it! Pieces begin at around $18 with all paints and kiln firing already included in the pieces price. You can paint and design your very own mug or make a personalised gift for someone special; we have kids as young as a few weeks old participate! With baby footprints and handprints being an absolute winner for memories and family gift ideas.
