Welcome to The Painted Pot!
We are a paint your own pottery and glass fusing studio located in the historic downtown. We carry earthenware (ceramics) that is cleaned, fired, and ready for you to paint! All of our paints and glazes are lead free and non-toxic. Finished pieces are dinnerware safe, so you can create usable art. Paints, brushes, creative supplies, and instruction are included every time you come in. We also have all the glass necessary to create a beautiful piece.
Our customers come in all sizes and ages. Kids are old enough when they can hold a paint brush (we have high chairs) and adults are never too old. No experience with painting or art is necessary because our friendly staff is always here with creative ideas and the tools to make your project a success.
Monday - Saturday 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM
Sunday Noon - 5 PM
No appointment or reservation needed! Come in any time to create your masterpiece!
Pottery prices vary from $5.00 up to $85.00. Average purchase is $20.00. We are an all inclusive studio. Pottery prices include EVERYTHING!
Gift Certificates are always available.
The Painted Pot is a great place to create unique, personalized gifts for any occasion, including-
- baby showers
- Mother's/Father's/Grandparents' Day
- Holidays (Christmas, Easter, Valentine's, St. Patty's, Flag Day, etc.)
NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
Steps to creating your masterpiece-
1. Select your piece (many times the hardest part)
2. Select a design using our stencils, stamps, idea books, or your own imagination.
3. Use our huge selection of glazes (paint), brushes, writers, and other tools to make your idea a reality.
4. Leave your finished item with us. We will overglaze and fire it.
5. Pick up your piece 4 days later.
6. Enjoy your reminder of a fun day spent with family or friends.

Preschool Classes - This year we will be offering monthly preschool classes for ages 2-5. The classes will be held on Wednesdays at 11 AM or 2 PM. Each month will have a different themed class, from Halloween in to a Mother’s day surprise in May, but all classes will involve hand, foot, or fingerprints again this year. All classes are an hour long and can be attended by mom too! Classes fill up fast, so book your spot before they are all gone (just click the "Book Online" button).

Private classes for 8 or more people can be arranged for any of the projects. Click "Book Online" to see our line up and get your spot!
Girls (Grow-Ups) Night Out! - When you come to GNO, we provide dinner and you bring your own beverages. Our focus will be on teaching glass fusing and more difficult painting techniques. This is a night for all adults - men and women are welcome, but NO KIDS! This year we will be kicking it up a notch with fun giveaways and a massage at every event. The price is $15 plus the price of your project. So grab a friend, and join us for some serious fun! Reservations are REQUIRED. Click the "Book Online" tab to make your reservation!
