Have you tried our Pottery To Go kits yet? You can order them online, over the phone, or in the studio. 

You get to pick from over 400 blank pottery pieces, including dinnerware, home decor, kids figurines, seasonal pieces, and even new officially-licensed ware like Star Wars boxes and banks. Each piece comes with travel-ready cups of ceramic paint colors to make the desired designs. Our team packs everything up in a kit that includes a sheet of tips for beginners and for seasoned artists alike. Extras like paint brush sets and gift-wrapping are also available, making the kits a great gift idea. You can then paint in the comfort of your own home, then return your artwork to Arts & Glass for it to be fired in one of our four kilns to a glossy and food-safe finish. 

When you paint at home, you get to work at your own speed.

“We love that the pottery is perfectly portable, so people can enjoy some peaceful, creative time even when they’re stuck at home and lots of activities are closed,” founder and owner Angela Barrett said. “The paints are non-toxic and washable before they get fired, so it’s very house-friendly.”

You might just surprise yourself with how creative you actually are.

In a time when playdates and in-person gatherings are few, the Pottery To Go kits provide a memorable activity that yields a long-lasting keepsake that is also functional. “We’ve had people buy kits for Girl Scout troop virtual meetings and Zoom birthday parties, so that kids can still make their own creations while interacting together safely,” Barrett added. “Our favorite part is getting to see how the kids paint their artwork when they get returned for firing.”

Put a smile on your young artist’s face!
