2. Choose Your Paint: Glaze Paint or Acrylic Paint? Glaze is (liquid glass) and stays with us for firing (7-10 business days). Acrylic paint you take home the same day. Glaze paint is food and liquid safe and Acrylic paint is NOT.

 When you’re done, fill out a registration and leave your glazed pottery with us. We’ll dip it in a clear glaze and fire it in our kiln. Pick up your masterpiece in 7-10 business days.

Our Story

Where does the name come from?

The infamous name of the store comes from the owners Diana Palomo and Amy Klingler. The Pigeon is Diana and her last name in Spanish means pigeon. The Hen is Amy and she used to own backyard hens before Diana babysat them. Not only are we store owners, but we both have college degrees in Ceramics. We wanted to use our degrees... so we opened a store only knowing each other for 4 months! Diana moved back from the Golden State, Amy back from the Sunshine state, we met in a ceramics class, starting selling our own pottery masterpieces together, then decided to open a pottery store. The rest is history!

Thank you for supporting and shopping local!
