What could be a better gift than a one-of-a-kind, hand-painted item created personally for someone special? There will be double fun as you see their excitement of receiving a “special” gift and they see your pride in having created that gift yourself. Locally owned and part of the North Canton community for 14 years, Glazed & Amused offers just such an opportunity. Their friendly staff will provide the necessary instructions and information for even the most novice artist. With over 500 items to choose from, ranging from animal figurines to 20 different types of mugs and 6 different sets of dinner plates, you will certainly find something for everyone on your list. There are numerous Christmas ornaments, as well as elf, Santa and snowman figurines to add to your annual holiday decorations. There is an option to suit any taste or need. Start a family tradition with a hand-painted heirloom decoration that can be handed down from generation to generation.
Glazed & Amused specializes in transferring the handprints or footprints of your newborn or toddler onto picture frames and mugs—a gift any one will cherish. Rather than battling the crowds at the mall, choose the option to spend a few stress-reducing hours with family or friends making gifts born of imagination. Every item will remind the recipient just how special they are. There is no gift more special to a grandparent than something created by a grandchild. Another plus, someone else cleans up after the youngsters are finished creating their masterpieces.
The process of selecting and painting a project typically takes between 1 and 2 hours to complete. Step-by-step instructions enable a person of any experience or skill level to complete a project that will surely exceed their expectations. After the painting process is completed, the project must be fired in one of their three kilns. It is important to remember that the firing process takes four days so it is not possible to make a gift and take it home with you that same day. The journey through the kiln will unlock the true vibrancy of the colors and you will be shocked to see how bright and alive your work of art has become when you return to pick it up later in the week. Some customers claim that the anticipation of seeing the completed project is the most enjoyable part of the process.
