Every parent knows how quickly children grow, and every pet owner cherishes the paw prints of their beloved furry companions. At Mr. Toad's Pottery, we offer a heartwarming and personalized experience through our clay impression plaques, trinket dishes, and ornaments. In this blog post, we'll take you through the process of capturing those precious moments and transforming them into cherished keepsakes that will last a lifetime.
Preserving Memories in Clay: Our clay impression service allows you to capture the tiny handprints and footprints of your little ones or the paw prints of your beloved pets. With just a 15-minute appointment, our skilled team will take multiple impressions, ensuring the best results for your personalized creation.
Your Customized Creation: During the appointment, we'll discuss your preferences, including the colors, wording, and specific designs you desire. Whether you're looking for a baby's handprint plaque or a trinket dish with your pet's paw print, we'll tailor the design to your specifications, ensuring a truly unique and meaningful piece.
Care and Craftsmanship: After taking the impressions, we handle the entire process with care. Our team meticulously cares for your impressions during the drying process, ensuring optimal quality. Once the clay pieces have dried completely and reached the greenware state, we clean and fire them, transforming them into durable bisque pieces.
Handcrafted Artistry: To add a touch of personalization, our skilled artisans hand-paint each bisque piece according to your chosen colors and design preferences. This attention to detail ensures that your finished creation truly reflects your vision and captures the essence of the precious moment it represents.
The Final Touch: After the hand-painting is complete, we apply a glaze to the pieces, enhancing their appearance and protecting them. The final firing in our kiln brings out the vibrant colors and ensures that the pieces are durable and long-lasting.
Once the pieces have cooled and the final firing is complete, we will contact you to let you know they are ready for pick-up. When you visit our studio, you'll have the joy of selecting your favorite pieces from the assortment we've created for you. Choose the ones that speak to your heart, and pay only for the ones you want to take home.
