How it works:


All of your paints, supplies, glazing (that makes it shiny), and firing (that makes it permanent) are included in the price of your piece. We have a friendly staff waiting to assist you and demonstrate new techniques upon request. There is no cleanup or time limit, which means if you don’t finish you can take your piece home and bring it back another day at no addition cost. We are very causal art studio; part of the experience is picking out your own paints. All paints are non-toxic, dishwasher safe, and unlimited!

Step 1: Pick your bisque from our variety of all shapes and sizes.

  • Bisque (noun) refers to ware which has been fired once and has no chemically bonded water left in the clay.

Step 2: Design and paint it.

  • Here at A Colorful Universe we have a variety of colors to choose from. There is no paint limitation. We have a wall of basic techniques, a sample book for inspiration and a friendly staff waiting to assist. 

Step 3: Leave your piece for us to Glaze and Fire.

  • We fire on Mondays and your piece will be ready for pick up Thursday after 2:00 p.m. Exceptions can be made for firing dates upon manager approval.
