Open for Business: The Painted Pot, 72 Seventh Avenue

The Painted Pot, a "paint your own pottery studio," opened over the weekend in the northern half of what was previously La Taqueria, on Seventh Avenue between Berkeley and Lincoln Places.

The studio, which has two other locations (in Carroll Gardens and Bay Ridge), was named "Best Kids' Party Place" in the Nickelodeon's Parents' Picks Awards. You can walk in, grab a pot and paint it, or sit down at a potter's wheel during one of their eight weekly classes and spin your own. Obviously, this place is a parent's dream when it comes to birthday party locations (along with Taro's Origami Studio up the street).

Along with pottery, they also offer handbuilding and sculpture classes, along with supplies for DIY mosaics. The facade isn't finished yet, so there's a temporary front (just like at Noella next door).

The Painted Pot, 72 Seventh Avenue Brooklyn NY 11217.

Such a huge bummer what they did to the facade of this storefront, all that great character wiped away.

I don't really care about the old facade much. I just hope both Noella and Painted Pot get A facade soon.

Not sure what you're talking about, they are restoring the facade to the way it originally looked when the building was built.

"Noella owner Melissa Rapoport told me that the landlord wanted to replicate how the building looked when it was first constructed, including a glassed-in entryway for both storefronts (La Taqueria has one as well but it was beginning to look rather decrepit). When completed, this one should let lots of natural sunlight into both shops."
