The Latest Glaze was a paint your own pottery studio on the southeast side. The store provided studio hours, unglazed ceramic pieces, and paints; the customer painted the piece and the store fired it in the kiln and had it ready for pickup a few days later. Available pieces for decoration included coffee mugs, plates, spoonrests, tissue box holders, and vases.
The Latest Glaze closed on September 22, 2012. The business had been for sale, but interest in buying it and keeping it open had been minimal. The owner's statement on the close was "We want to thank you for all your support and friendship over those years, whether you have been with us from the beginning or just recently starting to paint. We will miss all the fun this business has provided."
