Browse the bisque in our studio from home! Pick your pieces, add them to your cart and checkout, all online. Don’t forget to choose the colors you want and include them in the notes section when you checkout. If you don’t want to mess with our website, give us a call, let us know what pieces and colors you want and pay over the phone. Either way we’ll pack everything up and send an email to let you know its ready for pick up. You can even get notified by text message! You Creations To Go kit will be waiting outside by the door when you get here.
Through the years, we’ve had a few people who prefer working on their pottery creation in their own space and, as with most requests, we do our best to accommodate. Turns out, painting pottery at home is pretty easy, cleaner than you would expect it to be and just as fun. Creations To Go was never something we formally offered or promoted because…we like having you come in to studio! However, given the recent turn of events, we want to make sure everyone who prefers creating in the comfort of their own home knows they are able to do so.
Paint Your Own Pottery @ Home
How It Works
If you’ve been to our studio before you’ll notice not much about Creations To Go is very different than painting pottery at our studio. The hardest part will still be picking out your project. After picking your project, you’ll pick the colors you want to use on your piece and we’ll help you to transfer them into small cups to take home.
After picking out your piece and colors, we’ll check you out, wrap up your order and then your off to complete your project, at your own pace, in your own place. Once you’re satisfied with your work, bring it back to the studio to be glazed and fired. When you drop off your pieces, we’ll let you know when to return to pick up the finished project.
What to Expect
Your Creations To Go kit will include your ceramic bisque and enough underglaze to complete your project but, you’ll need to use your own brushes.
Take Out Pottery
1. Choose your pieces and colors online
2. We’ll text and e-mail you when your order is ready
3. Pick up your pieces at Your Creation Station
4. Take them home to paint
5. Bring them back to get glazed and fired
Once you decide on colors for your project, we’ll help you dispense the colors into our To Go cups. Our staff has a pretty good idea of how much you’ll need to cover each part of the piece and can also help make sure you’ve got what you need.
Unfortunately, at this point in time, we can’t really lend out our brushes as we’ll still need them at the studio. We’re kind of guessing most people will have some brushes they can use at home but in a pinch, we’ll see what we can do.
Picking your project will still be the hardest part
Picking out what you want to do will probably always be the hardest part and generally takes the most time. Our bisque selection varies from time to time but we do try to keep the standard pieces in stock. A mostly up to date snapshot of what’s on our shelves is online. Pick your project and colors, call us to purchase your pieces over the phone. We’ll pack up your stuff and bring it out to you at the curb.
You’ll need to visit the studio between 1 to 3 times depending on how you want to complete your project
After picking the pieces you want to paint and your colors you want to use complete your order online. We’ll wrap the pieces and colors up for you and send you a message when its ready to pick up..
You’ll need to come to the studio at least once to pick up your project. After that, its up to you. If you prefer to not have to return, you can use acrylic paints on your bisque. Please let us know ahead of time so we can pack the right paints. If you want your project to be fired, you’ll need to bring it back to the studio when your done painting where we’ll dip and fire it and let you know when to pick it up.
Our move is complete, all our inspections and certificates are finished and we are open for business as normal. Our first day being open to the public is November 7, 2019.
Any pieces painted in our old location have been fired and are ready to pick up.
Thanks to everyone who helped us get settled in, we had a lot of help and support from everyone. It is greatly appreciated.
We’ve completed our move to the new location but unfortunately, we are unable to open for business until we are given our Certificate of Occupancy from the town. Once the certificate has been issued we’ll be able to allow customers into the store.
When Will Be Open To Customers?
As of today, November 1, 2019, we’ve completed our final building inspection are are waiting for one final inspection from Middletown. I understand the process isn’t long, probably a couple of days, but it needs to be complete. The town has been very supportive of our move and business and we expect everything to be completed early next week.
Where Did We Move To?
Our new location is 318 E. Main Street, Middletown, DE 19709

We’re pretty proud of the fact that since our business started in 2008, we still retain and service one of our very first customers…every Monday.
