Creativity on Fire is restructuring as a not for profit corporation!
HERE'S THE SCOOP: As many of you may know, we have been working on relocating our kilns to a lower rent non-retail location. Our plan was to continue our after-school enrichment programs in local elementary schools and also offsite parties and events, but not to have a studio where people could do their artwork.
We have been touched and encouraged by the overwhelming response from our customers to keep a studio open! For this reason, we are raising money to open a new studio location in Arlington, VA where the community can learn ceramics, fused glass and other kiln-fired artwork. Based on your requests, the location would host parties, Ladies Nights, classes for children and adults, and lessons on multiple potter's wheels.
If you would like Creativity on Fire to open another studio, please show your suppport! Your donation is tax deductible and a gift of any amount will get us closer to our goal.
You can mail a check made out to "Creativity on Fire" to 6504R Williamsburg Blvd., Arlington, VA 22213 or you can click here to make a donation by credit card.

Creativity on Fire's mission is to promote the arts by teaching kiln-fired artwork to students of all ages.
When painting your own pottery, you start with bisque (pottery that has been fired but not glazed). Choose your colors from the over 160 glazes in our studio!
Also called Warm Glass
By gluing together pieces of glass, you can make stunning creations! We melt or fuse the pieces of glass togther in our kilns and can even make shapes such as bowls, plates and jewelry
Slipcasting is a technique used for creating ceramic shapes that are difficult to make by hand or on the potter's wheel. Learn the process for pouring slip into molds to make fun shapes.
Now offered in the studio!
During this 8-week session, students learn to make artwork that is fired in a kiln (hot oven). Students learn about the properties of clay, how to shape projects out of wet clay, how to attach pieces together, and how to apply ceramic glazes. For the fused-glass project, students learn how to combine translucent and opal glass to get colorful results. For one project, student combine glass onto ceramic and learn about different firing and melting temperatures. Click here to register.
Make your own ceramic artwork in the shapes you want by molding them from wet clay.
Learn to throw pottery on our "Brent B" potter's wheel. A private lesson is $55 and includes one half-hour lesson, an hour of practice time, glazes and two firings. A lesson on the wheel requires a follow up visit to paint your pottery (included in the lesson price). Recommended for ages 9 and up. Re Our studio gives private lessons or lessons in a series of four classes.
