Kiln helps fire up creativity

May 9, 2014

BELLINGHAM – It’s located in a retail plaza in the center of town, but you might say Once Upon a Kiln operates at the crossroads of imagination and functionality.

Here, you can create a dinner plate that looks like it came from the home furnishings department at Macy’s. You can eat off of it, throw it in the dishwasher, and treat it just like you would the Macy’s plate, too.

If ceramics aren’t your fancy, you might try making an ornate glass dish, jewelry, or a traditional painting on canvas. Once Upon a Kiln is where they have the raw materials and instructional know-how to do that special project, whether you’re a preschooler or a senior citizen.

“They’re not always looking for functional, sometimes they’re just looking for fun,” says Trina Lavoie, who launched the business last fall. “Sometimes the hardest part for them is picking out a piece to work on from all the choices we have.”
