How long has As You Wish Pottery been in business?
We have been the leading and innovative pottery studio experts since 1995.
If I paint something how long does it take for you to glaze and fire it?
Usually we are on a 3 day turn around time. At times during popular holidays – Christmas, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day – it may be extended a bit, but most of the time you can expect to pick up your pieces 3 days after you paint.
How long do I have to pick up my piece?
Due to space, all pieces will be held for 21 days from the date they were painted (date on your receipt).
Do you have to be artistic to paint something?
Absolutely not! That’s the best thing about As You Wish – anyone can do it! We give you instructions and we have lots of tools to make your piece a masterpiece!
I see you take reservations, do I have to have one?
You can certainly stop in anytime during regular business hours to paint, however, we do suggest reservations especially on weekends and holidays.
Can I paint a previously purchased piece? Can I paint a piece that was not purchased at As You Wish?
You can certainly paint any piece that you previously purchased at an As You Wish studio. Just bring in the piece along with your receipt and all you will pay for is your studio fee. We do not fire pieces that were not purchased at As You Wish.
Can I commission you to paint something for me?
Yes! We have an artist on staff who can custom paint a piece to your specifications. You may contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
What makes the products food safe?
As You Wish ensures that all underglaze and glaze paints are free of lead and acid. Additionally each piece painted with underglaze paint is glazed and fired which seals the product making it food safe. We do offer an acrylic paint that is not glazed or fired and is not food safe. This paint is used for products that are not intended to be used for food or drinking purposes.
Are the fired products dishwasher safe and microwave safe?
The products are dishwasher safe, however hand washing is recommended to extend the life of the piece. We do not recommend the product be put into the microwave as it may become extremely hot to handle.
What is your return policy?
We have the absolute best customers in the world, which allows us to offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all products.
