$20 for a Design-and-Paint-Your-Own-Pottery Experience ($40 Value)

Un-fired—or "naked"—clay creations await the touch of participants who journey to Cup O' Pottery's studio for an 90-minute to two-hour naked-pottery experience. Unlike a typical pottery-painting adventure, where participants simply paint already-finished pieces, at Cup O' Pottery, each patron plucks a still-soft clay object from the "damp box" and bedecks it with molded appliques, sculpted handles, or carved designs. They'll then paint their customized mugs, bowls, or Frankenstein-like mug-bowl hybrids with their choice from 12 colors of paint. Pieces will be available for pickup after bisque firing 2 weeks later.

Cup O' Pottery

Eight potters' wheels whirl next to shelves stacked with bisque pieces, worktables spotted with glaze, and walls hung with abstract art. The eclecticism of the space is one of owner and artist Tracy Wilmes's favorite things about his pottery studio, Cup O' Pottery—that, and the opportunity to inspire his students by leaping on a chair in his typical ebullient, and sometimes downright zany, teaching style. As a former high school art teacher, he loves educating students of any age, leading both family-oriented studio classes and open pottery paint and design sessions. The studio also includes a small retail area, where Tracy sells his own pottery and hands out mock detentions to disobedient clay.:
