Believe Big Mugs

At Playful Potter, we love our local community

and take pride in being a part of it. 



We believe in building relationships from families painting together, school field trips and auction projects, non-profit groups sharing a fundraising activity with us, after work fun with a girls night out, and team building events, to Scouts working on their pottery or painting badges, and to connecting to the community as a whole, to inspire with creativity! 

For over 15 years, we have worked with Washoe County and Lyon County schools and daycares in the area to make legacy walls, provide educational field trips and fundraising events. With local government art budgets cut so drastically, we provide a safe and nurturing environment for children and people with disabilities to run with their imagination. 

Over the years we have participated in many large scale events such Empty Bowls and Blessing Cup painting for local churches and the Food Bank of Northern Nevada. We also partner with Big Brothers and Sisters of Northern Nevada, who directly provide for the children in our community. 

Coming soon: We are partnering with Believe Big (in collaboration with Johns Hopkins  Hospital) to be a place to make special gift mugs for cancer patients.  Believe Big is bridging the gap between conventional and complementary medicine for fighting cancer and provides patients with hope, help, and healing. 


Paint a Believe Mug with your friends and family at our studio. We have partnered with Believe Big to have Believe Mugs painted at a discounted price. All you have to do is ask to paint a Believe Mug, paint it with the design of your choice, say a prayer of healing for the person who will receive it, and write the word “BELIEVE” somewhere on the mug; no other words please. We will package them and Believe Big will deliver to local cancer patients in our community. 

Ask us about how we can serve you and your group.
