Established in 1994 and originally called “Paint’n Place Studio.”  Our studios evolved to define what it means to be a successful contemporary ceramic studio.  Although many failed attempts to copy us have been made through the years, we owe the continued success of Purple Glaze Studio to our loyal customers and wonderful staff of artists.

From humble beginnings, our owners, father and son partners Jim and Jeff Stunkard have always placed an emphasis on how well we treat our customers and community.   Purple Glaze continues its generosity, giving to numerous local charities and schools while maintaining a local connection with our suppliers.  Ninety percent of everything used at Purple Glaze is purchased locally (not China).  Most of our ceramics are manufactured right here in the Tulsa area (not China) which helps support numerous families right here in your community.

"Thank you so very much for your years of continued love and support."

Over the years we have worked hard to keep our costs down and pass those savings on to you.  By purchasing locally and not being a franchise, Purple Glaze is more affordable than similar studios nationally.  We pride ourselves on being community driven and offer a great value and service for a very fair price.


Purple Glaze Studio is and will remain a Tulsa Family Owned business..  When you visit Purple Glaze, your money stays where it should…right here in Tulsa and The State of Oklahoma.


Many thanks to you, our customer, who has made us what we are today.  Your loyalty and dedication will continue to be returned to you and our community.
