Went here on my honeymoon about 2 years ago and I loved it! The owner was super friendly and helpful. You walk into a peaceful atmosphere and are allowed to be creative. Just pick what pottery you want and paint away! The prices are reasonable as well. I would def recommend this place to anyone.

My daughter likes to return to Fired Up every time we vacation in Asheville. They have lots of supplies and are great about shipping your finished artwork to you.

Owner was very friendly and helpful when we entered the shop on a weekday afternoon. We came with a 6- and 9-year old and there were plenty of cute options. Pricing is per piece plus a studio fee. So for 2 6" penguins it came to $39. It took us just 20 minutes to pick out paints and do the painting. A little expensive for regular visits but ok for a vacation visit. Now I am comparing the price to the plaster painting places we usually frequent with the kids at home. These pieces have to be fired and generally take a week but the owner was able to accommodate our vacation schedule and complete them in 4 days. When we picked them up they were in bubble wrap and all set for travelling. I think the activities geared toward adults sounded like fun and maybe more suited to the pricing. Overall, nice little place they have there.

We had such a fun time playing and allowing ourselves to just "do" for the fun of it. We listened to homegrown jazz music (by the owner's? band --- he goes above and beyond so I assume he owns the studio) and took out time selecting from the many glazes and stencils. Met a great couple from Georgia celebrating their 20th and shared our experiences. We felt right at home, uninhibited and thrilled to do something we have not done before. We can't wait for our creations to arrive in the mail, a permanent reminder of our wonderful stay in Asheville. Give it a try, you might surprise yourself!

Pick an object to paint; decide on your colors and design; immerse yourself in the creative process. These paint your own pottery places are nothing new but Fired Up is staffed by friendly people, is located on scenic Wall Street and has a relaxing vibe inside. It's fun, 'nuf said.
