Pottery to your Porch....
How will we know what there is to buy?

How long will we have the kit for?
24 hours (approx) which should give you plenty of time to do your painting and allow us to get to other customers.

Very belated, but sincere New Year wishes to all our readers and customers! After very busy and blessed Christmas Season our Studio team is gathering new strength and creative inspiration for new seasonal range of handmade and pre-bought bisque products. We started with our lovely Valentine's range, that includes lovebirds, hearts (bowls, vases, hangers, plaques and add on- hearts) and word signs.
Shortly after Valentine's Day, there will be Mother's day, which is always hugely popular at our Studio (and booking is advisable) and we have all sorts of lovely wonders that every Mum and Gran will appreciate, and after that, there will be Easter, and we already have flocks of chickens and bunches of bunnies vying for your love and creative touch!
Tasha has been busy throwing bowls and designing new studio sign, Zuzana has been busy making chickens and fishes, and in the middle of it all, little babies are having their hand and foot prints done, before they grow all b...
With the change of the seasons comes change in pottery range too!
Our firm favourites now share shelves with fantastic range of pumpkins and cats, bats and skulls,spiders, magic wands (to cast your own spells with, of course), and don't forget to paint a BOO! and display it in your autumnal arrangement at home, to make all those little trick or treaters feel pretty scared when they dare to stop by your door.
And if you haven't seen it already, do make sure to watch our new fun promotional video made just for us by the talented James Millward, an artist who is great with brushes as well as camera! Watch with sound :-)
Below are some lovely shots from our current Halloween range, some painted and many awaiting your creative touch.
Couple of weeks ago Natasha had a lovely work engagement in YMCA Plymouth, where children decorated cups and plates, as part of their summer activities. Everyone had lots of fun and painted lovely designs onto their chosen crockery.
ClayArt can be booked in advance for various group engagements, from hen parties, birthday parties, and group activities during summer holidays as well as school term times, or even after school clubs like The Cubs, Brownies or Scouts.
If you feel that your club or school could benefit from visit by Natasha, feel free to contact the studio and discuss your needs.

Do you know Elmer the Elephant from the book? Bishop Fleming Networking Events and St Luke's Hospice are organising ''Elmer's Big Parade Plymouth'' - a fun trail for big and small visitors of our Ocean City to take part in this summer time. The trail consists of hand decorated,large scale elephants that are placed along the trail, to make exploring fun. The organisers even arranged for ladies to come and paint their own little pottery elephants with us at ClayArt! Everyone had great time, the elephants turned out stunning and we are so happy to be part of the newest venture of summer season. There are still elephants available to paint, some sporting blankets and a shy smile, and some gleeful and jolly, but all of them white and waiting to be made special and go to their forever home! We are opened 7 days a week, so there is plenty of opportunity to make this a lovely day out.
Below are shown some photos from the painting da...
Recently we had been blesses with hen parties galore here in the studio, and one extra big one as out of the studio assignment for lovely Sophie, who is getting married in couple of months' time, and decided to celebrate with her hens in picturesque country house in Torpoint.
Lovely Tasha packed blank coffee cups, paints, brushes and all her knowledge and off she went, returning with box full of wonderful, colourful creations!
We also made commemorative thumbprint plate with bride's chosen design of their hen party cottage.
