Clay Craft Made Easy

Our kits aim for purpose over perfection, so there’s no “right” or “wrong” in this user-friendly clay play.

Follow the included step-by-step instructions and learn how to make a variety of functional mugs, or throw caution to the wind and shape something entirely original.

Inside the Kit

Each expertly curated DIY kit comes complete with everything you need to design + sculpt an original art piece, including:

  • Hot Chocolate Bomb
  • Premium Ceramic clay (develops with dark speckles after kiln firing)
  • Step-by-step instructions
  • Pro tools handmade in the USA
  • Small smoothing sponge
  • Plantable wildflower seed coaster

The Big Finish

Ceramic clay requires professional kiln firing to become waterproof/food-safe. Learn more about firing + glazing on our FAQ page.

Not sure where to find a kiln? No problem! We’ve taken all the guesswork out of this step by providing an interactive map of studio locations near you

Don’t need your pottery to be waterproof/food-safe? No kiln near you? Simply let your decorative ceramic clay piece air dry. Handle with care: it will remain very delicate + will dissolve if you get it wet (even after drying).

Sculpting Sustainably

We’re helping to create a world in which we don’t need to sacrifice the environment in order to get crafty. We curate every kit with the planet in mind, from the locally-sourced clay and tools handmade in the USA to naturally-based paints and eco-conscious packaging.

We also seek to partner with other women-owned brands + suppliers who share our values by operating on 100% solar power and offsetting their energy usage with renewable energy credits. When you’re finished sculpting, make sure to visit our sustainability page for details on recycling and disposing of all eco-friendly packaging elements.

Fun Family Activity, Great Quality!

I ordered this pottery kit with hot cocoa bombs for a Christmas Eve surprise activity with my family. It was very fun to use the clay, build something with our hands and the variety of tools that come in the kit. I definitely will point out that the clay was great quality and super relaxing to smooth out with your hands. We couldn't wait to have our cocoa bombs long enough for the clay to dry after we created mugs (doesn't take long, we were just eager) so we also enjoyed hot cocoa on Christmas Eve. Thanks so much Sam for the personalized note too!

Great Product!

My sister loved this!

Relaxing Experience + Quality Kit

I didn't think doing pottery and having muddy hands could be quite so relaxing and fun, but it was. It's often hard to know if art supplies are vegan, but I was pleasantly surprised to learn everything Pottery with a Purpose offers is vegan.

Delicious Date Night Activity

I recently received this kit as a present. It was a great (and delicious) date night activity. The kit had plenty of clay for 2 people, and the cocoa bomb was so good…I couldn’t tell it was vegan!

Two air dry clay vases with dried flowers, and a ceramic clay tealight candle holder sitting atop a blue photo prop.
