What do we do?

The Glazed Look was opened in 2003 for the general public to have fun painting pottery. Children, adults, experienced artists or even those of you just wanting to have a go – painting is for everyone! We stock over 400 pottery pieces, including a huge range of pre-drawn items for you to just ‘colour-in’. For the more artistic amongst you, create your own design. There are plenty of display pieces for inspiration or come prepared with a favourite design or picture to be transferred to your chosen pottery piece.


We glaze and fire your pottery which is ready for collection another day giving you a lasting memento of your visit.
