Missy Tanner of Madison has reopened her paint-your-own-pottery studio in a new location.

She and her mother, Joyce Spell of Florence, opened Mo’sArt in Gluckstadt in 2009, but closed it after a year and half when their mobile business that takes orders at day-care centers for keepsakes featuring children’s handprints became successful.

Many of Tanner’s former customers asked her to open her studio again so they could drop in and paint pottery, and she did just that earlier this month.

Mo’sArt is now open at 105 Lexington Drive, Suite C, in Gluckstadt, next door to Pink Possum Boutique and Gifts and in the same shopping center as Germantown Wine Spirits.

“We have hundreds of pieces of pottery that children, adults and teens can select from and paint,” Tanner said.

The studio provides the paints (nontoxic) and fires painted pieces in a kiln; finished pieces are ready for pick up in just a few days. Anyone can drop in and paint something when the business is open.

Prices for pieces to paint range from $5 to $60, with children’s items ranging from $8 to $12, Tanner said.

Keepsake boxes and banks in all sorts of shapes from ice cream cones to flowers are especially popular with children, but so are animals from owls to frogs. An entire set of dinnerware awaits adults.

A parent and two children can each paint a mug ($10 apiece), spend a total of $30 and have a fun, memorable time being together plus end up with cups safe for coffee, tea and hot chocolate.

Paint-your-own-pottery is a fun form of entertainment that appeals to families and is suited for birthday parties and a night out for women, she said.

Mo’sArt has a private party room and offers three different options for birthday parties, she said. Parties start at $150 with an eight child minimum; the party hosts supply the cake and ice cream.

“It’s a very convenient way to have a birthday party,” Tanner said. “The children paint their own favors, and then the birthday host can come back and pick up all of the items that were painted after they’ve been fired and then deliver them or the children can come back and pick up what they’ve panted.”

A summer camp is planned at Mo’sArt from July 18 through July 21 from 10 a.m. to noon each day. The camp, for children ages 5 and older, will include the creation of ceramics, canvas art and distressed wooden frames. Cost is $150 per child.

Also in the works, Tanner said, are ladies nights out that will offer women some fun down time.

Tanner, whose nickname is Mo, said she fell in love with painting ceramics the first time she tried it in 2009, and that’s what led her to open Mo’sArt. The business has two employees: Debbie Adams of Madison and Tricia Kirtley of Brandon.

She still operates a mobile business that takes orders at nine day-care centers for personalized keepsake ornaments and other items that feature a child’s handprints.

Tanner sets up a display at a center of the keepsakes available, a parent completes an order form and Tanner takes it from there, working with children whose parents want to get their handprints on ceramic keepsakes. The items make appealing gifts for grandparents, she said.

“I hope to work with between 12 and 15 day-care centers before Christmas,” she said.

Mo’sArt also sells Duncan and Mayco Ceramic Paints, which is an option for anyone who would like to buy pottery and take it home to paint.

Mo’sArt is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Monday is reserved for private events for organizations such as schools and day cares. For more information, call 769-300-8311 or 601-608-8999.
