If it weren’t for the archival nature of ceramics, we’d have little insight into the rainy-day activities of ancient Greeks. Make your own lasting, creative mark with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of paint-your-own pottery and studio fees at one of Amazing Glaze’s two locations inside the Mt. Washington Mill or the Festival at Bel Air Shopping Center.
Amazing Glaze makes it simple for amateur artisans and ceramic virtuosos to produce colorful pottery pieces using a variety of stencils, stamps, and tracing outlines. Start by choosing your desired paint-vessel from a vast selection of more than 400 ceramic compositions ($3–$50), including coffee mugs and dinner plates to adorn kitchens and vases to grow your pet panda's bamboo snacks in. Pick a design from the store's volumes of sample books or enlarge a wallet-sized photo of your homecoming date on the studio's copy machine, select from more than 100 colors, and then create a design for your earthenware masterpiece. For the artistically stymied, on-staff artists will be standing by to assist with the pigmenting process. Glazing, firing, and brilliantly hued paints are included in the $7 per hour studio fee (caps off at $12/day), and polished objects are ready five days later.
