THIENSVILLE — A local pottery store is making sure Mom still gets a gift this upcoming Mother's Day.

Glaze in Thiensville is offering to-go pottery kits. You can choose from hundreds of pieces of pottery and the glaze to go with it. Kits also include paint brushes and some Cedar Crest ice cream.

You place your order over the phone and pick it up on the curb. Paint your pottery at home and return it later for firing.

Owner Kristina Eckert started Glaze nearly 16 years ago. She says it was always her dream to paint pottery all day.

"We bring creativity to the community," she said. "We're all about connecting with people and showing the fun projects they can make."

Before the Safer at Home order, Kristina had a staff of 20. Now she manages the business with just two people at a time.

She recognizes the importance arts and crafts has on the community, saying "You can't quarantine creativity. Being creative can really help with your mental health."

Kristina says gnomes, unicorns and turtles are some of their best pottery sellers. Right now Glaze is also offering Wine and Design kit that includes a bottle of wine. They are also encouraging people to paint with friends over Zoom.
