About Fire Escape!

Jacqui & JD Esler

Welcome to Fire Escape® — Calgary’s premiere paint-your-own ceramics studio.

We will guide you as you embark on a ceramic painting adventure. Unfinished earthenware pieces are transformed into functional masterpieces that are completely unique and personal! Once thought of as only decorative or fine art, ceramic painting has become a creative and fun experience for everyone!

We offer a wide variety of unpainted pieces, including bowls, plates, mugs, vases, and more, that you can finish in almost any way imaginable. We also have an inspiration centre of tools, materials, and creative resources that help add that unique touch to your finished piece. When your painting adventure is complete, leave your piece with us for only 3 days during which we will clear glaze and fire it for you at no extra charge.

Product features and care

Fire Escape product is hand painted using high quality, non-toxic colours and finished with lead free glaze. Slight surface imperfections may exist but are common among the hand crafted fired arts. Fire Escape strongly recommends hand washing your pieces and avoid oven and microwave use.

Our glaze colours are non-toxic and dinnerware safe, which means all of the pieces that you paint can be used at home, work, as well as for the perfect gift. So young and old are invited to participate in one of the most rewarding creative adventures you'll ever have!
