Thank you for working with my six year old grandson, Cole Ewing. He has enjoyed being able to express himself artistically with clay and learn a new procedure. There is a friendly accepting atmosphere in your studio. and some fine art is being turned out. The experience exceeds our expectations. Sincerely, Grandma, Pauline Pierce

What You'll Get


Creative talents, like houseplants and celebrities, wilt without proper attention. Nurture your inner artist with today's Groupon to Fire and Mud Studios in Escondido. Choose between the following options:

  • For $20, you get a one-hour introduction-to-wheel class (a $40 value).
  • For $50, you get two one-hour wheel classes and a one-hour glazing class (a $120 value).

Fire and Mud Studios' spiritual owner, Rae Barney, imbues her teaching style and pottery creations with nature’s influence, helping to impart the world's innate beauty into the sculpting hands of her clientele. Intimate one-hour wheel courses edify no more than four sculpting neophytes with skills to mold twirling clay into formations including dinnerware, sculptures, and decoy strips of bacon to catch so-called “friends” red-handed. Students opting for two wheel classes can further enhance their clay-spinning proficiency along the pirouetting platform with a one-hour glazing class that indoctrinates pupils with the basic abilities to bedeck pieces in eye-catching accents. Potters are encouraged to keep hair pulled back and fingernails short to prevent ticklish teacups from squealing mid-instruction.

About Fire and Mud Studios


Artist Rae Holton sees energy. The owner of Fire and Mud Studios and lifelong arts and nature enthusiast harnesses her inimitable sight of what she calls "the vein-like serpentine flow of atoms" to create offbeat works of art in a variety of mediums. Raised among artists and craftspeople, Holton has dabbled in jewelry making, photography, cooking, and ceramics, and cultivated a love for teaching after stints as a children's ski instructor and after-school program educator. Helming her pottery-focused studio, Holton helps others unleash their inner artists through classes and workshops as students learn the history of ceramics or how to remove the head off a classical sculpture with a hedge trimmer.
