The existence of prehistoric pottery shards paints a clear picture of ancient artisanal practices while highlighting ancestral clumsiness. Leave behind traces of your own civilization with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of paint-your-own pottery at Clay Town in Lockport.
Clay Town’s pottery proficients guide do-it-yourself designers through the process of customizing home-worthy pottery pieces. Peruse Clay Town’s unglazed gamut of ceramic dishware, drinkware, home accessories, and lawn ornaments before picking up a piece to adorn with a periwinkle pigment or a hand-painted mural of Albert Einstein pruning a head of broccoli. Patrons can personalize pottery with myriad colors of glazes, stamps, and stencils or call upon an art associate for advice in creating a piece to impress the tempestuous kiln. Within five days, glazed and fired masterpieces return home with their makers, safe for ferrying food and able to withstand microwaves, dishwashers, and jealous taunting from undecorated cupboard denizens. Though pottery prices vary as widely as the mispronunciations of the word facetious, smaller pieces, such as mugs and tiny figurines, start around $6 and bigger pieces, such as vases and mixing bowls, can range up to $56.
Clay Town cozies customers in a bright studio with natural lighting and spacious worktables. With a calendar full of coloring hours –not fairytale protagonists’ birthdays—Clay Town accommodates walk-in artists up until the hour before closing.
