Art and Fun for Everyone!


We open in downtown GJ on May 4th! Our new location will be open Wednesday May 4th at 634 Main Street Suite #101, across from Heirlooms for Hospice (next to the Avalon Theater).

Welcome to Fat Cat Pottery, a “Paint Your Own Pottery” studio.  We are located in Grand Junction, Colorado’s beautiful downtown. You can find us on Main Street across from Heirlooms for Hospice.  Here at Fat Cat, you walk through the door, pick a piece of pottery and paint, paint, paint! We will do the rest, including the dishes, just leave it with us for a week, then pick up your finished masterpiece.

Now,  I bet you have some questions. Lucky for all of us, Fat Cat has the answers. Let’s start at the top shall we?

Question 1:Oh jeez, do I have to be an artist? Absolutely not, you just have to be willing to have some fun. Yea! We have a fun loving and patient staff who are here to help you create something you will show off and be proud of.  When the compliments come pouring in over your beautiful piece just say ” Oh that old thing? I made it.”  Feels good huh? However, should you not feel the need to make and show off an awesome piece, you can always buy one of our finished pieces or custom order that special something.

Question 2: Do I have to make an appointment? Nope, we take walk-ins! You can come in during any of our regular business hours and you can paint to your hearts content!  If you plan to have a group of 6 or more, give us a call so we can make sure you have a nice comfy spot to accommodate your group!

Question 3: Alright, it all sounds to good to be true, is there an age limit? To this we say age limit, smage-limit.  We love kiddos. We encourage the whole family to come in, spend an afternoon with us and make some memories (and some super-cool art).

How It Works

Feeling artistically challenged? No worries, experience is not necessary. We’ll be there every step of the way, cheering you on and helping you take the pottery world by storm!  We love happy customers and we will do our part to help you succeed.  Alright, so here’s how it works from top to bottom, side to side, topsy turvy and upside down.

#1. Pick out your piece: We have hundreds of pieces to choose from including mugs, plates, platters, bowls, goblets, tiles, figurines, banks and boxes. If you paint here all of your pieces can be used. They are all non toxic and food safe.

#2. Choose a design: We have all the tools you need to create a beautiful piece and have a great time while you do it. Taking a class or workshop is a great way to learn techniques and create stunning projects.

#3. Paint your piece: Choose your glaze colors and start painting.

#4. Pick up your masterpiece: Leave your finished pieces in our care and we will dip it in a clear glaze and fire it in one of our kilns. Then, start the excitement countdown! Come back in a week and rejoice in your awesome-ness.

We have new items arriving each week, so come in and check out all the new pieces. We’re always on the lookout for new, funky, useful, fun and fancy free items for you to enjoy in your home, office, or in that gift bag that will wow your friends and family.
