46 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, May 23 - May 29, 1997 A young customer, Molly Hoffman of Trainor, Pa., tries her hand at creating an original piece at Hands On: A Ceramic Paint Studio in Rehoboth Beach. Get your Hands On creativity at Rehoboth ceramic paint studio By Trish Vernon At Hands On: A Ceramic Paint Studio which recently opened in Rehoboth Beach, one may use the "pigment" of one's own imagina- tion to paint a ceramic master- piece or just spend a couple of rainy day hours experimenting and comparing other's "piece d' resistance." Kathy Marshall has hundreds of unpainted clay-fired bisque arti- cles ready to be transformed into personalized treasurers. There are the traditional bowls, pots, vases and mugs, along with pet dishes, soap dispensers, frames, bookends and seasonal items awaiting a per- sonal touch. One picks out a piece, ranging in price from $2.50 to $40 or $50 and sets to work, with the studio fee at $6 an hour. This fee in- cludes all paints, brushes, sponges, stencils, guides, friendly advice and instruction from Mar- shall herself. When complete, Marshall will apply a clear glaze and fire the piece in her kiln out back. "If you're finished by four, the fired piece will be ready the next day, or we can ship it," Marshall ex- plained. Each one is lead free, watertight and food-safe. Marshall, whose husband Rob is the president of the Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce, encourages people to bring in their children, meet their friends, book a private ceramic painting party or just "drop by on a Friday or Saturday evening with a bottle of wine and give it a try." With a degree in business and now working toward a second de- gree in art, Marshall had studied with local artists while growing up. It was her mother, Joan Wittmer, however, who gave her the inspiration to open Hands On, as in her parents' home of Miami, these paint studios are all the rage. "I believe art should be accessi- ble to everyone and you don't need any great talent or to invest a lot of money. We really encour- age young people to come in - we have special low tables and chairs just for kids," she said, as well as being able to seat 46 people at the high tables and chairs. In fact, whereas many opera- tions of this type charge per color of paint used, Marshall includes all paints in the $6 lump sum and they come in a very wide spec- trum which she will help cus- tomers coordinate if they need the help. "You couldn't buy the fin- ished product for anywhere near the price in a pottery store and it wouldn't necessarily fit your color scheme and decor," she noted. Hours at Hands On are noon to 8 p.m., Monday through Thurs- day; 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sunday through the summer. Marshall plans to be open spring through fall at 216B Rehoboth Avenue. Call 226-2110. Kathy and Rob Marshall stand in her new store, Hands On: A Ceramic Paint Studio, which recently opened on Rehoboth Avenue. Her father, Steve Wittmer, stands in background.
