Clay Craft Made Easy

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

Design, sculpt + decorate original candle holders with simple, step-by-step instructions. With this kit, you’ll learn how to handbuild holders for the included pillar candle + tealight candle.

Inside the Kit

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

  • Premium air dry clay (dries white/light gray)
  • Pillar candle (1), tealight candle (1), vial of matches
  • Step-by-step instructions - learn how to make a variety of candle holders
  • Pro tools handmade
  • Small smoothing sponge
  • Non-toxic white paint
  • Vegan paintbrush
  • 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.

Great customer service!!

I purchased the kit for my step mom. She loved it but one of the candles arrived broken. I contacted Pottery with a Purpose to see if they would be willing to ship out a new candle. She shipped one the next day. Wonderful product and great customer service!! I will purchase again!!

Beautiful kit!

I loved the clay and candle kit! Everything about the kit is beautifully selected and arranged! Then candles are gorgeous and thoughtful. I love the attention to detail within the kit, and items. The kit is a true labor of love, and an amazing project!

Courtney Camp
Great party

Thoroughly enjoyable, educational and fun!

Becky Mooney
Amazing Fun!

I was intimidated by the idea of a clay project online. However, this was so much fun! We were able to relax, laugh& enjoy each other’s company, all while making a clay creation. Most of the materials were in the box. The other few items you need are in your kitchen. Our host gave wonderfully detailed instructions for a novice like me. I was able to keep up & enjoy the party. Highly Recommended!
