Maurice and Daniel were wonderful. This was a surprisingly easy and rewarding activity. The kind of thing that most of us wouldn't do in our home town and the perfect kind of thing to try while on an adventure. This is something even self-proclaimed "not creative" people could do. The guys are extremely helpful and encouraging (not to mention entertaining) and I would HIGHLY recommend a visit to this studio.
The one down side is that it might be a bit pricey and possibly out of people's vacation budget if they are looking for spur-of-the-moment activity.
Good things to know before you go in and get started:
The project prices start at $25 -which I think is entirely reasonable for a set of 4 personally-made coasters or a 6x9 "plate." Prices go up from there and they pretty much jump to $85 and contiue to rise. They don't allow you to split the project up among mulitple people. Meaning- you can't go in with 2-4 people, pay $25 and each work on a coaster or two of your own. A set of $25 coasters is a single person project. If you each want to participate, you each have to do a seperate $25+ project.
If you are planning to take these home with you and are in Lincoln City for a limited amount of time, keep in mind that your project will take 8-plus hours to fire. And if you just drop in without a reservation, any groups who come in with a reservation get priority on the... kiln?? (the firing boxes) so if you are leaving town before they are finished firing, you will have to pay to have them shipped to you. The guys at the studio can't tell you how much it will cost to ship because the shipping place charges based on weight and the zip code it is being shipped to.
