Here, you get to pick out a piece of pottery, paint it, and then they fire it up for you, and you will have a long-lasting memory of a wonderful time, and a useful piece of pottery. The service is great, they help you pick out the paints, and provide kind assistance. It is VERY fun to be creative and... More

My hubby and I wanted to take away a momento from our honeymoon trip to Asheville. To paint any ceramic in the store is an automatic $8 per person plus a shipping rate of $15. So before we even picked out a piece we were already at $31. We found this quite expensive compared to other places we had been.... More

We visited Fired Up on a Monday after lunch. We were the only people in there at the time and we were on a time limit as we had a 10 month old that was due for a nap! My 8 year old and I both painted a piece of pottery in about 30 minutes. The person working was very... More

The wife and I went in on a busy Saturday afternoon. The place was pretty busy but the owner was still attentive and friendly. She explained what they had to offer and made us feel welcomed. We decided to paint some pottery...so we picked out what we wanted to paint (i.e. bowl and mug), grabbed our colors, and let our... More

So the premise of most creative lounges is simple: Select a design (pottery and sometimes glass), decorate it to your liking, then submit it to the employees for baking in the oven in order to seal in the goodies, and it comes out all shiny and new! Adults and children are welcome here, and Fired Up! has plenty of options.... More

We spent our honeymoon in Asheville. Visited Fired Up! and created a wonderful plate together. Now we have a memento of our trip that we created ourselves. All the great local art in Asheville inspired us to be creative also. And Fired Up was a such a great place with a really creative vibe. Would highly recommend stopping in.

Recently spent the weekend in Asheville with a few of my girlfriends. Stopped in Fired Up! and had a blast. Most of us had painted pottery before so decided to try Glass Fusing. Totally enjoyed the experience. Easy to do and the pieces we made are amazing. Great place to get creative, lots to choose from and a very helpful... More

This was a spontaneous stop during a downtown walk-a-about. A cutesy playful environment that visually invites your inner kid to explores her crafty side. The owner and staff are cheery. For my friend, who a busy social worker, Fired Up appears to be therapeutic for as she designed a stained glass that was whimsically colorful. Fired Up provides all the... More
