Confused?

  • Are your products food safe? - YES! Everything is painted is dipped in a clear glaze that makes everything food safe when fired. You can sip and eat safely! 

  • 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 dremel tool. 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 pages for many product photos.

  • Do I need a reservation? - Well, this depends. If you have a larger group, it's the weekend, or the peak season, reservations are encouraged. Though, "walk-ins" are always welcome. 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? - I usually do a "last-seating" about an hour before the closing time. It is normally at least an hour long process to choose your item, pick your paint colors, and settle in to painting. 

  • What is your studio fee? - There is a $7  "per-person" "studio fee" in addition to the piece you choose to paint. This fee covers the cost of the paint, the glazing process, and firing your pieces. Not a "per-item" fee.  

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

  • I am a potter. May I use your kiln? - I'm sorry, but no. It's hard to know exactly what each piece is made from, and I can't take a chance that my customers pieces would be damaged in the firing process. 

  • Can I eat/drink in GAC? - Yes! Outside drinks are always welcome. Food is fine during a scheduled party, but you just need to be careful with grease, or food, on your hands during painting. It can potentially keep the paint from properly adhering to the pottery. 

  • Are you Handicap Accessible? - Yes. :-) 

  • Are Pets allowed?- Yes, but you are encouraged sit at one of the outside picnic tables. Especially with larger dogs. Tails start wagging with all the fun we have, and pieces go flying! LOL!  All service animal are welcome.

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

  • Does your mascot have a name? - Yes. Theodore DeGlazer. Better known as "Theo". 

  • Is there ANY reason why I shouldn't come paint pottery at GAC? - Nope! It's super fun for all ages!
