While our bisque ceramic finish is beautiful in its natural bare state, we can make it ANY color. Choose from one of our popular glazes, faux or solid acrylic finishes, or specify a color from a recognized quality paint brand (e.g. Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore). If you enjoy DIY, our bare bisque ceramic is smooth and easy to paint.
Our clay produces a beautiful matte off-white bisque finish when fired. You can use our natural bisque fixtures for a clean and simple look, you can paint the bare bisque yourself, or we can apply your choice of finish for you.
CUSTOM OPTIONS GALORE
Allow us to make your fixtures match your decor perfectly. If one of our most popular finishes isn’t exactly what you’re looking for, you can

- Or, choose a signature A19 faux finish
All of our finishes are applied to order. Adding a finish makes your order custom. Custom fixtures are non-returnable. Subtle differences in color and texture from batch to batch are characteristics of our handmade products.

Care & Maintenance
Natural “bisque” (unpainted ceramic) fixtures can be cleaned by sanding with fine 150-grit sandpaper. Do not use liquid cleaners on the porous bisque surface.
If you enjoy DIY, our bare bisque ceramic is smooth and easy to paint. You may use any basic acrylic or latex paint of your choosing. For the ease of clean-up, etc. water based paint is recommended. Should you choose oil based paint (e.g., a can of spray paint), we recommend using an appropriate primer first; otherwise, a primer is not necessary.
A19’s finishes are durable enough to hold up to wear both indoors and out. The exterior surface can be dusted or wiped clean with a non-abrasive damp cloth or sponge.
DAMP & WET LOCATIONS
To prevent water from reaching the electrical connections, apply a bead of silicone around the full perimeter of the fixture housing to seal it to the wall surface. Our standard damp location fixtures are suitable for indoor or outdoor locations subject to condensation of moisture. Select our Outdoor/WET rated option when the light fixture or electrical components will be directly exposed to rain water.
