We're on open studio which means you can come in anytime - so pick a seat!  We'll explain how all of the glazes work, show you where the brushes are, and help you select from hundreds of pieces of bisque that are ready to paint.  Your pieces will be fired in our kilns and ready to be picked up in one week.
