All Fired Up frees the creative creature contained within each customer by facilitating the therapeutic creation of one-of-a-kind pottery and glass works. Pottery provocateurs choose from more than 800 paintable pieces, including mugs ($16–$25), dinner plates ($22+), and figurines ($12+), and draw artistic inspiration from the provided stencils, idea books, and priceless Roman drinking vessels stationed about the studio. Staff members encourage painters to use as many of the more than 50 colors as they desire and allow as much time as they need to finish a genre-bending salad plate ($16+) or postmodern platter ($36–$100). The finished piece then stays at the studio rent-free for overglazing and firing in the kilns, where it is transformed into a food-, microwave-, and dishwasher-safe masterpiece. For fans of more transparent treasures, glass-fusing projects see customers assembling colorful, vibrant panes using provided tools and precut components, resulting in beautiful, original designs that require no glass-cutting experience or shattering operatic solos. For gift-givers, today’s Groupon is also valid towards the purchase of gift cards, which can be used year-round.
Fans of constructive criticism can forgo plans to woo the local museum curator by booking a Van Gogh party, which brings up to15 aspiring artists together for a 90-minute pottery-painting affair. Perfect for a kid’s birthday or a girls’ night out, partiers select any piece of pottery valued up to $16 and use their time in the studio to transform it into a beautiful, valued keepsake or a valued keeper of beautiful leftovers.

Inside their three studio spaces, the owners encourage a laidback atmosphere, where their customers can unwind while unleashing their inner Rembrandts during drop-in studio times, parties, or date nights with suave paintbrushes.
