Ceramics in the City

...where art is entertainment!


Est. 2003

Ceramics in the City is privately/locally owned by a mother/daughter team. Sharon and Stephanie opened the studio in hopes of bringing Denver, Colorado a hip and fun place to relax and be creative.  They enjoy working together and have a ton of fun.  

Ceramics in the City has a great staff of friendly and knowledgeable people.  There is always someone in the studio to help make your visit as great as possible!

Come into the studio and you join a family who loves art and celebrates the creative spirit!

What are your hours?
We are open 7 days a week!
Mon - Saturday 10am - 8pm
Sun 11am - 5pm

Do I need to make an appointment or reservation?
Ceramics in the City takes walk-ins.  We can get pretty busy so reservations on any day is never a bad idea.  It usually takes over an hour to choose and create your artwork - if you do not finish your pottery painting you can return at anytime to complete it at no additional charge.  When you are planning a trip to Ceramics in the City please keep in mind when we close.  We ask that you finish your projects about 15 minutes before closing time so we can complete check out and end of day clean up.  

Can I bring in food & drinks?
You may bring food!  Keep in mind that greasy food and pottery/glass are not friends.  You are welcome to bring any beverages. 

Do the paints stain? Are they safe for kids to use?
Ceramics in the City is totally non-toxic & lead-free. The underglazes do not stain. After glazing & firing your pottery is food safe.  We recommend that you do not microwave your pottery.  Canvas (acrylics) paint does stain and we offer aprons to keep your clothes clean!

How old do you need to be to paint?
Every artist is different.  Some small children are like bulls in a china closet and some are more delicate in their actions and thoughts.  You know your child and what they can handle.  Babies can make a mean footprint keepsake and some 3 year olds can give Monet and run for his money.  Many of the pieces are especially tailored for specific age groups.   We ask that adults accompany children ages 12 and under unless the child is participating in a workshop.  

What if I do not finish my project?
If you do not finish painting your pottery before you need to leave the studio we will be happy to wrap up your project and send it home with you.   Glass projects must be completed on the same day they are started. Most projects - pottery or glass - take at least an hour to complete and we ask that guests stop working on their projects about 15 minutes before closing time. Please keep this in mind when you are planning a trip to Ceramics in the City.

How long does it take to get our projects back?
We will have your painted pottery fired and ready for your use in 7 days and many times sooner.  For glass we also need a week to complete.  If you slump your glass then you need to add another week.  If you need projects done quickly it never hurts to ask if we can get your project done sooner than normal.

What happens if I can't come pick up my project when it's ready?
We will hold your project for 30 days. Because we lack storage space we can not be responsible for holding it longer than that. 

What kinds of payments do you accept?
Ceramics in the City accepts Cash, Debit, MasterCard or Visa, Discover, and American Express.   We do not accept personal checks.
