Keepsakes for your lifetime. There are many ways and methods to capturing that moment in time and clay. We help you create these kinds of keepsakes for all ages from 5 days old and up. And don’t forget the non human family members. You can create your keepsake from clay or make handprints with glaze on pre-made bisque pieces like plates, bowls, cups etc. This service is charged based on the bisque object you select. For example, a bowl is $16, dinner plate is $19, mugs/cups $15-$18 plus tax.

Clay made keepsakes handprints will require 2 visits to the studio. The first to create. It will take up to 3 weeks to dry thoroughly and then bisque fired. Then you come back and apply glaze and have the final firing.


8″x11″ clay keepsake $20

Each additional clay keepsake (made same time) $17

If you are planning to bring in a group of people to do this project… it is best to call or email ahead to make sure we are ready to assist you and don’t have another event happening at the same time. Think of it like having a family portrait done, you would make an appointment. Also we will give you ideas for your keepsake, but arriving with a picture is always helpful.

Clay slabs (which is what we call these plaques) need to be gently covered and allowed to dry slowly to avoid warping and or cracking. Clay slab is a form that tends to crack in the firing processes. We don’t say that to frighten you away, 9/10 have no issues. You should always anticipate this could happen and allow yourself time to make another, especially if this is a gift.
