Artfully Yours
Designs & Inspiration

About Us...

Our mission is to provide a playful place for people of all ages to create works of art in an inspiring,  relaxing and fun environment. Our artists have ranged from 5 hours old, to 102 years young!


We strive to provide the best and most playful customer service possible to help our customers to create more than art... to create memories!

In her eternal quest to “touch people,” Denise opened Playful Potter, a paint-your-own-pottery and glass fusing studio in 2002.  She has been painting murals in Northern Nevada for over 20 years, and now she has taken that knowledge and shaken it together (in a martini shaker, of course!) to create a successful canvas painting program for her studio and yours.  Artfully Yours Designs was born from a need to have advanced (looking) designs but without having to invest in a costly program or waiting for designs to ship.  She aims to make design accessible to you and your customers!  Denise’s support team includes her PP staff, her wonderful husband, three dogs and one fat kitty.

Playful Potter was opened on August 1, 2002 as Nevada's largest paint-your-own-pottery studio. We have continued to have the largest selection of pottery choices and have to grown, to add drop-in glass fusing, art enrichment camps and canvas classes to our selection. We host Playful parties for all ages and show you all you need to create wonderful masterpieces on a daily basis!


Our studio is a family owned and of course; a family friendly business.


Studio owner Carole-Ann Ricketts, is a British artist who has a BFA (honors) in Ceramics, Painting and Printmaking from the University of Gloucestershire, UK. She exhibits reguarly, both locally and internationally. Her 3 children love to "help" at the studio and her husband often gets roped in for late night glazing.
