Editor’s Note: This article was updated with new information about the temporary closure and comment from the owner.
Kiln & Co., a paint-your-own-pottery studio that also serves up custard, has temporarily closed for renovations, according to company owner Sarah Selvaraj.
The company, which first opened at Lake Anne Plaza in 2017, plans to reopen by the spring or summer of this year. Selvaraj said it is not unusual for the business at Lake Anne to go on hiatus for the winter.
The Reston location was forced to close overnight on Sept, 11 last year due to water damage. “We might have a relocation within Lake Anne due to the infrastructure issues as indicated… and if the real estate was sold,” she stated.
Lake Anne has been part of the Kiln & Co family ever since our first 2016 pop up covered by RestonNow’s Karen Goff on June 16, 2016. My relationship with Lake Anne dates back even before opening my first store. I have taken several sculpture classes and ceramic classes at the Reston Community Centre with amazing instructors like Guy Zoller and Marianne Cordyack that teach there to this day.
As of yesterday (Thursday), the company’s website lists the Reston location (1631 Washington Plaza-N) as “closed.”
Late last year, the owner expressed concerns about the lack of upkeep and maintenance at the plaza and several businesses.
