About Glazed Expectations
About Glazed Expectations – We are a locally owned and operated paint-it-yourself ceramic and sculpture studio on W. Main Street in Carrboro. It was opened in 1999 by Susannah Sloan and offers a wide array of activities: summer camps, after-school classes, birthday parties, corporate events, baby showers, engagement and bachelorette parties, graduation, or any special event.
Susannah sums up her path to owning and growing Glazed Expectations:
“While in college studying psychology, I took a sculpture class and found I enjoyed the creative process. As I spent more and more time in the studio, my instructor mentored me, starting me on a path as a self-taught artist. After arriving in North Carolina nineteen years ago, I opened my ceramic studio so I could focus on developing my art. Having evolved from self-teaching to teaching others, now I benefit from the insight a studio full of artists can provide. When a viewer sees a ceramic piece, their mind is taught to think vessel, bowl, vase, mug… . I try to steer the viewer’s mind away from this societal conditioning and into the realm of the unexpected; the universal freedom before adult preconceptions.”
“I want each customer, whether it’s their first or one-hundredth time painting ceramics to follow their own creative process: challenging expectations, questioning assumptions, and discovering the artist within.”
