Artist of the Week 11-17 Jan 2015

We had a difficult time this week deciding for Artist of the Week so we selected two! Emily Henderson with her The Beatles mug “before Kanye West making Paul McCartney famous” what an awesome idea! Harvey Leister with his GUATAVITA painting on an 8″ tile. Great job Harvey & Emily!

Paint Your Own Ceramics – Did You Know?

Paint your own pottery studios and shops have flourished over the past two decades.

Did you know, for instance, that:

~ Sources suggest that the first paint your own ceramics store opened in New York City in 1993.

~ By 1997, Entrepreneur magazine reported that there were around 200 stores across the nation.

~ The Contemporary Ceramic Studios Association says there were some 2,000 stores around the world by 2007. At that time the latest figures (for 2005) indicated that around 5 million customers visiting paint your own ceramics studios had generated world wide sales approaching $400 million.
