Best D.I.Y. Pot Shop, as in Ceramics 

Terra Mia Decorative Art Studio

Tucked in among Noe Valley's chic boutiques, bakeries, and restaurants is this delightfully free-form ceramics studio. Wander in, pick an unfinished piece of pottery from the shelf, and paint it any way you like. Would-be ceramic artists can choose from plates, goblets, big serving bowls, clocks, and a variety of figurines, and enhance them with a veritable rainbow of glazes. Then, the Terra Mia wizards fire and finish the piece, returning it to you within a few days in all its colorful glory. They'll also help new parents — and their new bundles of joy — make those all-important hand- and footprint plaques. Artists pay a flat studio rate ($10 for adults, $5 for kids under 12), plus a fee for each coffee mug or serving platter that receives the Van Gogh treatment.
