When someone buys a pottery painting kit on our site, a portion of the proceeds are spent on a "kit" of art therapy supplies for sick children in hospitals.
Pottery Awesomeness gives based on the individual needs of each hospital's art therapy department. We work directly with the lead art therapist at each hospital in our program to determine what supplies are needed. These "kits" of supplies are bought by Pottery Awesomeness and shipped directly to the hospital. No middle man.
This means that for every purchase you make with us, you are putting a paint brush or a marker or an art journal directly into the hands of a child who needs the power of art the most.
Summer is a time for FUN!! Between summer treats (ice cream and popsicles? Yes, please!), swimming at the pool and plenty of time outdoors, it’s no wonder why summer is a favorite season. It’s also a time to spend together as a family—barbeques, road trips and don’t forget the ART.
Here at Pottery Awesomeness, we believe family comes first! What better way to spend time together than by painting a fun project? We also love the burgers, sprinklers and pool floats shaped like flamingos, but hanging out and painting together is the BEST! Families that “art” together, smile together!
Our “Summer Kits” are the perfect Summer activity! Make painting these beautiful pottery pieces a fun family activity and then use them! It is a craft project every mom can love, as the keepsakes it creates are useful and beautiful.
The coolest thing about the “Ice Cream Cup & Spoon” that comes in the kit is that they are hand-glazed by local artisans on the inside. The cup is food safe and ready for ice cream anywhere there is ceramic fired glaze!! The remainder of the cup is bare bisque pottery, allowing you to paint and decorate it freely with acrylic paints without the need to fire it in the kiln afterwards! Super cool! We do recommend hand-washing these cups after each use. The glossy sealer that comes in the kit should be applied only to the portion of the cup painted with acrylic paints.
Included in each kit:
(1) AWESOME Ice Cream Cup & Spoon with a glazed and fired interior making it 100% safe for ice cream (3¼" Dia. x 3¼" H (8 Ounces)
(1) medium-sized pair of Flip Flops (1 ½" L x ¾" W x ¼" Thick each)
(1) Sunglasses Tag-Along (3½" L x 1¼" W x ¼" H)
(1) color palette with acrylic paint including white, black and (6) other AWESOME colors
(3) kids paint brushes
(1) 1 oz container of brush-on sealer
(1) sealer brush
(1) instruction card with QR codes that will direct you to painting tutorials and instructions for how to paint pottery and use brush-on sealer
Everything you need is in one adorable, super easy to order box. My daughter loves to open them and see what is inside. And she loves to paint each surprise. I love it too, for a few reasons, I love watching her use her creativity and doing something she loves, it’s such an easy thing for me to do something special with her, and I enjoy it too...it brings out the kid in me! We can’t wait to get our Easter kits!

My daughter loved to paint all the items in the July 4th kit. It was a perfect activity for a holiday at home. It was fun and now she wants all the liquids in her cup. We will definitely do it again. Thanks!

This was such a great activity for my daughter and I to do together. We had so much fun and her daddy loved the Father’s Day present. We’ll definitely do it again!❤️
