The Petroglyph Ceramic Lounge offers people in San Jose a chance to paint pottery pieces, have them fired and take them home, all of a very reasonable cost. Even the most inexperienced artists can create pieces of art the entire family will love. The studio offers all of the tools, supplies and support a person could need for creating great pottery pieces. A visit to the studio is a great opportunity to spend time with friends or family, or entertain children for a few hours with a creative task. Prices are very reasonable and for less than ten dollars, children and adults get a day pass to the studio. The pass covers supplies, glazing, kiln firing and workspace. Pottery pieces are sold for an additional charge and vary based on the size and complicity of the item. The knowledgeable staff seat participants at tables around the studio with supplies and are on hand in case painters have any questions. Painting takes up to two hours and then pieces are dried, glazed and fired in the kiln. Firing takes up to eight hours and pieces must cool for nearly 16 hours. Once this process is complete, painters can pick up their works. This gives kids an adults a chance to anticipate the arrival of their completed piece, which looks drastically different than the painted piece left at the studio. Groups and parties are welcome at Petroglyph.
