Inside the Kit

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

  • Premium Air Dry clay for 1-2 people or 3-4 people (dries white/light gray)
  • Step-by-step instructions - learn how to make a pinch pot, hanging planter, or footed pot
  • Pro tools handmade in the USA from imported wood
  • Small smoothing sponge
  • Non-toxic white paint
  • Vegan paintbrush with a bamboo handle
  • Plantable wildflower seed coaster

The Big Finish

Air dry clay requires up to 3 days of dry time (no kiln necessary - not waterproof). After your clay has fully dried, you can paint it using the included white paint pigment + natural acrylic medium.

PRO TIP: Plan to use your air dry clay pot as a planter? We recommend displaying dried flowers or potting an air plant that requires minimal moisture. You can also insert your plant into the air dry pot while still in its original plastic container - just make sure there are no drainage holes where moisture might seep through!

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 the 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, reusing and disposing of all eco-friendly packaging elements.

Amazing Product!!!!

What a relaxing and enjoyable process. I thoroughly look forward to my subscription (and will have to upgrade of course) because this is simply too fabulous of a kit! Thanks, Sam!

So much fun to unplug and create!

This was my first pottery experience and it was so fun to unplug, step away from technology and get creative! I started out by making pinch pots and it was so fun I already ordered a subscription to make more pieces!

Great beginner kit!

This was a pretty large amount of clay, great for one medium piece or a couple of small ones per person. The instructions made it easy, and trying out the tools made it fun! Very cute couples activity

Fun V-Day Activity

My boyfriend and I had so much fun making something together and helping each other create something we know we're going to use. The instructions were clear and helpful and the seeds for planting were a fun little bonus. Would highly recommend!
