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.
Our kits aim for purpose over perfection, so there’s no “right” or “wrong” in this user-friendly clay play.
Design + sculpt an original work of art with simple, step-by-step instructions. Learn how to make a pinch pot, functional mug, versatile footed pot, hanging planter... or throw caution to the wind and shape something entirely original. New kits released quarterly.
Each expertly curated DIY kit comes complete with everything you need to design + sculpt an original art piece, including:

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.
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.

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.
Perfect in every way! It made for a lovely Valentine's day gift, and came exactly as ordered.
Got the deluxe as a gift for a friend and they have not stopped raving about it! Everything is so cute and well thought out. The seller even checked in to confirm the best paint colors to send over and whether or not I wanted to add a little note to the order. 10/10 would recommend :)
Next, I need a box for myself!
