I've been going to this place for 8 years now first hanging out with friends and now as a mom getting memories pressed in clay. While the options of paint colors has increased other options have decreased or all together disappeared. You

There used to be a store similar to this in my area, called Color Me Mine. It was located in a busy shopping mall, and it was the quiet place to go, after a busy day of shopping, on a cold rainy day, or when you just wanted to leave reality behind. Ceramicafe provides the same calm, warm, cozy environment. They have many different kinds of ceramic pieces to choose from. Whether you want to let the grandkids make a plate for grandma celebrate grandparents day; paint a favorite animal for a children's room; paint a piggy bank for a baby present; or paint any other personalized ceramic item, you will find it in this store. The best part about this store is the way that the process works. You don't purchase paints and brushes, instead, you sit in this semi-caf feeling environment and paint the pieces that you choose, and then they fire them, and you pick them up a few days down the road. All you pay for is the ceramic piece you want to paint. They have birthday parties, where all the kids get to paint things, and the kids feel such a sense of accomplishment when they can "make something" themselves. I cannot think of a better way for your child to say "I love you" on Mother's Day then to paint a personalized ceramic piece. Whether it's Mother's Day, or no special occasion in particular, it's a great place to spend the afternoon. The most "stressful" part of the whole process is the waiting game, which starts the minute you finish painting. You leave the store, so proud, so ready to show your beautiful piece to the world, and you have to return a few days later to pick it up, so sad to leave the piece you painted behind, but it's a happy reunion when you get the piece back, and it looks so professionally done, that you will wonder whether or not you really painted it. Whether your child wants to paint something quick and sloppy, or you want to spend hours creating the picture perfect masterpiece, then Ceramicafe is the place to go.

PROS: Wonderful little shop to spend the day painting ceramics.
CONS: It will drive you crazy waiting for your finished piece to come back!

My daughter went to her friends birthday party here, and absolutely loved it! Her friend's mom had gone earlier and picked out what they were going to paint, so when they got there, it was ready to go, and it could stay in her budget. About a week after the party, we got the piece my daughter had painted. It still sits up on my daughter's shelf, and she still talks about that party!

You can sit at this place and paint anything ceramic, and as much as you want! When you're done they fire it and you pick it up in a few days! How easy is that? Gift certificates make good gifts too! Very coffee house ambience!

Ceramicafe is a great place to go if you want to make something unique for yourself or as a gift. Basically you choose a pre-molded, unglazed piece (such as mug, plate, figurine) and then you paint it. If you're bad at this kind of thing, just keep it simple and you'll enjoy the process and the final product. The help you'll receive is questionnable, don't expect anyone to guide you through it (unless it's very slow that day...).

At this store, you pick out a ceramic piece, paint it with your choice of glaze, and then have it fired. Voila! Your own masterpiece.
This is a great choice for mother's day, father's day, etc. You can make a usable plate with handprints on it. I made a cereal bowl commemorating a trip to Hawaii. The hardest part is thinking up something to paint and deciding which piece to use.
They also have decorative statues available.
