Our Story

Peek In Pottery is a full service Ceramics Art Studio. When we first started in the business many years ago, we decided to break away from the traditional ceramics store business model, by offering ready to paint bisque as our primary product. Unlike many of the “paint your own pottery” franchise storefronts that subsequently followed our lead, all of the ceramic pieces we sell are produced on-site in Pekin, Illinois, USA. With over 12,0000 molds, we offer a huge selection of pieces, including many vintage and discontinued favorites. Danny, our Operations Manager, controls all phases of our operations, including ceramic molds maintenance, pouring, cleaning and firing. For safety and quality reasons, we only use raw materials (slip) produced by another regional business.

Nora, our Artistic Director, loves helping customers design the perfect ceramic project. Our customers appreciate our family friendly atmosphere, where prices are affordable and our teaching techniques result in treasured keepsakes for all ages. We tailor our art instruction to be inclusive of special needs and capabilities. Over the years, we have provided art instruction programs, activities and designed fundraising items for local schools and not for profit organizations such as Boys and Girls Club, YWCA, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, 4H Clubs, Daycare, After school and Summer Camp facilities.

As always, Nora and Danny are looking forward to serving you at our location in Pekin, and now we are excited to be able to bring these same great products and services to you through our Peek In Pottery Online store. Be sure to check back often as we continue to update the site and add new products.
