Glass provides a resting place for wine, evening wear for Cinderellas, and a more dramatic exit from 44th-floor windows for Bruce Willises. Shatter artistic inhibitions with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a 60–90-minute fused-glass-plate class at Expressions Art Glass (an $89 value). Classes usually begin at 6:30 p.m. and are held Tuesday–Saturday.

Expressions Art Glass is currently celebrating its 20th year of bringing colorful glassware into the homes of discerning art-lovers. Led by an experienced instructor, a fused-glass-plate class allows amateur artisans to create their own fragile masterpiece, ideal for displaying on the fireplace mantle or the dashboard of a spare helicopter. Using glass, a mold, and kiln firings, students learn to shape glass with mosaic cutters and prepare their plate for the sintering flames of the kiln. All classes are taught to small groups and Expressions Art Glass will provide all materials and tools, preventing the need for students to harvest their own sand and tote along their own fire. Plates will be ready for pick-up after one week's time.

Husband-and-wife owners Andy and Jennifer Cole are the expert artisans behind the Expressions Art Glass operation. Jennifer Cole is an internationally collected glass artist whose work is on display in the Firefly Glass Gallery, next door to Expressions and has written two books on her craft.

Customer Reviews

I enjoyed my class. I live a bit far away to go too often, but am looking forward to returning to pick up my finished piece which was ready in only a few days. This was a good introduction to glass fusion.

What a fun class. Even if I don't develop this as a hobby as it is so far from my house, I would love to go back and visit. I have a deep appreciation for the art now.
