Art is hard, especially when fortified by the heat of a fusing kiln. Make a piece of sturdy and smooth eye candy with today's Groupon: for $47, you get an first glass-fusing class and an 8"x8" plate of your creation at Bullseye Glass Co. on 21st Avenue (a $95 value).

Bullseye Glass Co., established in the 1970s, crafts more than 1,000 colors and forms of glass at their Portland factory and instructs students in the art of glass forming at their studio resource center. During the 2.5-hour first glass-fusing class, virtuosos of the vitreous teach lay-artisans fundamental concepts of kiln-side craftsmanship. Participants will create an 8"x8" fused and slumped plate, choosing from an expansive assortment of colors that complement kitchen decors or paint-sample collections. Like an irrational restaurant owner, instructors fire the plates, making them available for pick-up the following Saturday.

Students who have discovered a particular métier for molten glass are eligible to continue work on their own during open studio times. Classes are held on select Wednesday evenings, so call ahead for specific times and dates.

Bullseye Glass Co

Founded in 1974 by three "hippie glassblowers," Bullseye Glass Co produces internationally renowned glass materials in thousands of colors and finishes suitable for artistic endeavors of all kinds, such as mosaics and stained glass. Aside from being beautiful to look at, most of Bullseye's glasses are compatible for fusing and kilnforming—something that's especially important for glass artists to know. Bullseye also passes on the ancient art of glass shaping through artist-guided classes. Graduates of these kilnforming classes can return to craft additional treasures or explore the cyclical nature of art by turning a wineglass back into a sandbox.
