Confused?

  • Are your products food safe? - YES! We used water based paints and glazes. We don't recommend the dishwasher.

  • Why is there a 4 day turnaround? - Once you paint your pottery, we allow the piece to dry overnight. The items are then glazed and "fired", which is a two day process. During the summer months, when we are at our peak season, we may need more time to get all the items "fired". We always can ship your pieces to you, for an additional fee, if you are leaving town before they will be ready. 

  • What are those little marks on my finished pieces - Those are stilt marks. We apply a clear glaze to your painted items before firing them in the kiln. To insure that the items do not adhere to the shelves, they are placed on metal stilts to keep them elevated. We then grind down any sharp edges with a fine grain stone. Also, we do are best to stilt your pottery in a way that is the least noticeable. Usually on the bottom.

  • Do you have a catalog? - Not really. Because our inventory is always growing and changing, it would be impossible to keep a permanent catalog of our products. And sometimes, our suppliers simply don't carry certain items any longer.  Also, our inventory may change with different seasons. You can always check out our Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest pages for many product photos.

  • Do I need a reservation? - No, walk-ins are welcome. If you want to come with a large group, we do ask that you give us a little heads up. If you wish to schedule a party, or event, outside of my normal business hours, give me a call. 

  • Do you have a last seating time? - Generally speaking, no. Even if painters show up at 5:53pm, and we have nothing else going on, we will hang out with you! 

  • What is your shop fee? - The "shop fee" is a $5 fee, charged per person, that covers the cost of paint, dipping glaze, and the labor involved in firing the painted piece. 

  • Do you ship? - Yes. United States shipping is available for an additional fee. 

  • I am a potter. May I use your kiln? - We're sorry, but no. We do not fire 3rd party products.

  • Can I eat/drink in GAC? - Yes! Outside food and drinks are welcome.

  • Are you Handicap Accessible? - Yes. GAC is in compliance with the accessibility guidelines of the ADA".

  • Are Pets allowed?- Yes, as long as they are well trained and house broken. All service animal are welcome.

  • What payment methods do you accept? - Cash, all credit and debit cards, ApplePay.

  • Does your mascot have a name? - Yes. Theodore DeGlazer.

  • Is there ANY reason why I shouldn't come paint pottery at GAC? - Nope!
