Due to icy roads our Portland location will have limited staff today. Please call ahead and leave a message if no one answers and we will get back to you ASAP. Stay safe out there.

A note to our customers. This year has been very challenging. Thank you for your patience and commitment to the products and services we provide you. During the Covid-19 pandemic we have been hit with a number of set backs that have slowed the processing of most orders. Despite these circumstances we are working hard to come up with creative ideas to quicken our response and get your orders to you as soon as we can.

Braintree Supply Store (E-Mail Braintree):
Please place your orders at least one day ahead of time. It is easiest if you email a list of the items you are looking for to braintree@portlandpottery.com. We will call you as soon as your order is pulled and ready for pick up. Our Braintree store still remains closed to foot traffic, but you can still place orders for curbside pick up. We will not be able to fire kilns at our Braintree location until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Portland Supply Store (E-Mail Portland):
Our Portland store is open for browsing. We are happy to have you back in the store again! Two customers at a time please. Curbside is also available in Portland. It is recommended to place the order ahead of time whenever possible.

Studio Opportunities and Rental

Private Classes

We are happy to create a class to fit your needs(throwing classes limited to twelve people). One-on-one instruction for most topics can be scheduled at your convenience. The cost is $45 per hour. Materials not included.

Create Your Own Class

If a group of at least six children or adults would like a particular class, we will put it together. The time, place, medium and theme are all flexible. We are open to everything from one-day workshops to eight week sessions, special presentations and events. We are glad to host special homeschool sessions and studio tours and are happy to help scout troops work towards their badges. Projects available could include clay, jewelry, fimo, raku, silversmithing and tile design.

Corporate Parties

Need a cool and unique idea for an office party?  Have a corporate party at Portland Pottery!!  You and up to 13 of your employees can get out of the office and get creative.  During the party we will go over all the basics of making pottery.  A teacher will teach you and your employees how to throw on the wheel, attach handles and even trim your pots.  Then Underglazes will be used to paint them.  After the party the pots will be allowed to dry and then fired in a kiln* (allow 2 weeks for the finished product).  Your pots will be food, dishwasher and microwave safe.  Be the envy of you office building when you and your employees come in with your own hand crafted mugs.

Kiln Rental

Firing is available by the kiln load or by the piece in our electric, gas and raku kilns.  Electric kiln loads 23” wide by 27” deep are $50 Cone 05/06 and $100 Cone 6 or higher.  Space in our 100 cubic foot gas kiln is $100 per kiln quarter (glazes not included).We calculate per piece prices by the cubic inch (length x width x height).
