Near the end of the twentieth century, ancient technology raised its hand to help inspire an old idea into a new service.  With a few picnic tables, basic art brushes, acrylics and a small little kiln, the Paint’n Place Studio was born.  “It didn’t take long to learn the difference between green ware and bisque” according to Partner Jeff Stunkard, when asked about the beginning of this paint-your-own pottery studio.  “We started with about 100 different dogs, cats, dolphins, bears and other ceramic forms that appealed to kids.”

 

“Our first couple of years, we made almost everything ourselves utilizing heavy plaster molds.  We would pour the molds, clean the green ware and fire about fifty pieces at a time.  Once the items were fired into bisque, patrons would bring their kids into the studio, pick out a critter they like and we would provide the brushes, the paint and a little instruction.”   Our first Artist in Residence was Jody Quinten who taught us about ceramic arts and provided many of those first pieces.

 

From humble beginnings, father and son partners Jim and Jeff Stunkard have always placed an emphasis on how well we treat our customers and community.  Ninety percent of everything used at Purple Glaze Studio is purchased locally.  Most of our ceramics are manufactured right here in the Tulsa area supporting numerous families in our community.

Now, 20 Years into the venture, the PURPLE GLAZE STUDIO has locations in Brookside and in South Tulsa catering to young adults, old adults and kids of all ages providing house wares along with the critters and thousands of ceramic items to paint.  Leave the project with them to be made food safe and microwaveable or use the acrylics and take them with you the same day.

 

Purple Glaze Studio is great fun for Corporate Team Building, Birthday Parties, Church Groups, Scout Organizations, Bridal Showers, Baby Showers and Schools.  Purple Glaze Studio offers a unique experience that everyone will enjoy.

 

During the entire month of May, Purple Glaze Studio has reduced the studio fee from the everyday low price of $6.00 to the special anniversary price of $2.00 to show our appreciation to our wonderful base of old customers and to attract a few new artists to our studios.
