Archaeologists and teenagers have proven that hearts made of stoneware are far more durable than their sappy, fragile human counterparts. Fire up today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of ceramics classes, field trips, and kits at Morning Glory Fire Arts.
Kristin Hendrix teaches students to create functional and decorative ceramics during Morning Glory Fire Arts' classes, field trips, and other hand-crafting adventures. All materials are included in the two-hour clay classes ($24/child, $30/adult) where students can sculpt a bowl, vase, or replacement sock before returning a week later to glaze the fired piece. Clay players can also put together a pottery-to-go kit ($7+ depending on selected item) packed with a custom set of brushes, glazes, and other materials to create and fire ceramics at their own pace. Hendrix will tote glazes, tools, and clay or bisque to a location of the customer’s choice for a reverse field trip ($5/person for groups of 12 or more), sparing supervisors the trouble of collecting notarized permission slips.
Today’s deal is also valid toward Hendrix’s finished pieces, such as the red sushi plate, an earthenware dish with a basket-weave texture and a cherry blossom–shaped reservoir for holding soy sauce ($19). All of Hendrix's paints and glazes are lead-free, nontoxic, and water soluble, and the finished pieces are safe for consuming lead-free, nontoxic, and delicious foods.
