A Visit to Park Circle Ceramics

A look into a Park Circle hidden gem.


Tucked away into Park Circle’s assortment of restaurants and shops, Park Circle Ceramics is a charming pottery spot that features a variety of painting options and an enjoyable time. Owned and operated by the city of North Charleston, Park Circle Ceramics is a pottery shop that was opened to the general public following the Coronavirus pandemic. Very affordable and an opportunity to be creative, this pottery shop makes for a fun activity, either after school or on the weekends. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the pottery-making process. The pottery shop is open from 10 AM – 7 PM on Tuesday – Thursday, 10 AM – 2 PM on Fridays, 10 AM – 4 PM on Saturdays, and is closed on Sundays and Mondays. The ambience is very inviting with a quaint and homey-vibe and has a multitude of pottery and different types of paints including glaze, crackle paint, and more. The crackle paint is a type of paint that explodes inside of the kiln and creates a unique pattern, allowing for a unique pottery piece. The process of creating pottery here involves picking out a particular piece and then filling a palette up with different colors of paints. After picking out paints, you receive a tray with your piece, water, a sponge, and a pack of brushes. After painting your pottery, the piece will be placed near the kiln and fired within the next week. This process is very easy and enjoyable, acting as a peaceful creative outlet. Most pieces range from $12 – $40, making this activity considerably affordable based on the particular piece. Additionally, Park Circle Ceramics offers themed pottery-centered classes each month, as well as classes centered around photography and general painting. This quaint establishment in Park Circle allows for an affordable and easily accessible activity with family and friends complete with pottery, paint, and fun!
