My 6-year-old daughter is very proud of the heart shaped jewelry box she painted. I took my son on a separate occasion to make little pots out of clay. The staff is fantastic. They love kids, they're friendly, reasonable, and make everyone feel welcome. A wonderful experience for the kids, and I don't have to clean up afterwards!

Kiln Creations is one the many places where patrons can paint their own pottery and leave it to be fired in the kiln and pick it up about a week later to create a unique gift or personal item.

There are literally hundreds of items to choose from at Kiln Creations from coffee mugs to cake platters to wall decorations so everyone can find something that fits their interests and their budget.

There are also several special events every month including Girl's Night Out when customers are encouraged to bring food and drinks to enjoy while they paint their pieces.

All in all Kiln Creations is a fabulous experience for not a great deal of money.

This place rocks. You select your pottery piece, use their materials, idea books, stencils, etc., leave it for them to fire and pick it up in a week.

I've taken groups here to do a ladies night out (flat fee on Thursday evenings), my daughter to do a mommy/daughter day out, as well as just gone in to make special personalized heirlooms for my kids and a large plate decorated with my family's name and "est.date" for family celebrations.

The best time I had was when my husband and I took advantage of their "two for one" studio fees on valentine's day and sat, talked, and painted together for an evening. Beat the movies (and cost about the same) any day!!

It's not cheap, but not overpriced for what you get. You pay per hour of studio time, plus the piece you select, with prices ranging from $3 up to $50.

As of July 2013 we have moved to our own space in Broad Ripple! Check out our new place at 6511 Ferguson St, Indianapolis, IN 46220 (just 3 blocks north of the old studio on Broad Ripple Ave)



My goal is to have the best paint-your-own pottery studio in Indianapolis.

More about Half Baked Pottery & Gifts

Pottery Painting The first step is for you to chose a piece of pottery to paint. We offer example books, stamps, stencils, tracing paper, sponges, tape, pencils, and more to help you design and decorate your piece. You pick out as many colors as they need to create your work of art. After you leave, we let your piece dry, dip it in a clear glaze to ensure it is food-safe and then fire it in one of our two kilns. Pieces are ready to be picked up 1 week after you paint. There is a studio fee to use all of our glazes and tools. It works like free refills at restaurants; pay one fee and use as many materials as you want on as many pieces as you care to paint! Glass Fusing This is my new favorite medium because its so much fun for me to open the kiln and see all the beautiful glass! Glass Fusing is like stained glass, but instead of using lead to hold the glass together, you melt it into a solid piece. We have a rainbow variety of glass in pre-cut shapes. Don't see the shape you want? No problem, we'll teach you how to cut the glass to what you need. We can even shape your piece into a bowl or plate by running your piece through the kiln a second time. Glass Fusing is perfect for ages 10+; although, we ask that children have active parent supervision. Glass Fusing takes 2-3 weeks for your piece to be ready. Glass is priced based on the size piece you choose. Mosaics I like to think of a mosaic as a puzzle where you determine how easy or difficult you would like it to be. They can be intimidating to start because they require you to think about your design in a different way. However, I believe they turn out looking very professional, even for beginners! To start, pick a background for your design. We have lots to choose from including: mirrors, picture frames, coat racks, squares, circles, clocks, trays, and other fun shapes. Then layout your design. When you have something that is to your liking, glue the pieces in place. After 24 hours you can grout it at home with white or black grout. Oh, and did I mention? Mosaics are the only project you can finish and take home with you the same day. Great for last minute gifts or out of town guests! Parties and Groups We are a GREAT place for Birthday Parties, Field Trips, Family Get-togethers, Bridal Showers, and Team Building Groups. Give us a call to discuss your next event. Have a large group or an unusual situation? We can accommodate you! We often go off site for large events (i.e. charity work, daycares, after school programs, Rush events, etc). We can also pack up supplies and send them home with you if you have a group that is unable to come into the store. Let us know what you're working on and we can work with you to make it happen! Custom Work We have a artist on staff who would love to make your dream piece a reality. Perfect for weddings, signature plates, anniversaries, birth announcements, house warming gifts.
