Deluxe Clay Kit – Ceramic

Our basic Ceramic Pinch Pot Kit + our Underglaze Kit in one convenient box!

Make your own pottery at home with everything you need to design, sculpt + decorate a hanging planter, footed pot, functional mug or versatile decor piece. Then enhance your ceramic clay piece with beautiful designs in saturated underglaze colors that stand out after kiln firing (we can help with that!).

Step-by-step instructions, carving tools, ceramic clay, vegan paintbrush with bamboo handle, 3 underglazes of your choice + plantable wildflower seed coaster included.


  • Kits for both 1-2 people and 3-4 people include only 3 underglazes, which is enough to decorate more than the clay included in your kits. If you'd like additional colors, check out the individual underglazes available.
  • Pottery pictured has been fired in a professional kiln + glazed.

The Big Finish

Ceramic clay requires professional kiln firing to become waterproof/food-safe. 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).

P.S. The included underglazes can be used with or without clear glaze to add a shiny finish. The studio that helps fire your pieces will take care of that for you + provide the clear glaze.

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 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.

Deluxe Clay Kit – Ceramic


I plan on gifting to my partner. I'm excited to see what we create with them.
Customer service is also amazing. I forgot to pick colors out for the glaze that was included in the ceramic kit, and rather than send random ones, Sam reached out to see which ones jd mine

Mayo Hirai

Great Gift

Gave as a gift for Christmas! My sister is making a small shelf for her room. Super complete set. There was a slight delay with shipping (likely due to the holidays), but Sam was on top of it. It was quickly resolved and there was great communication.
