Art is hard, especially when fortified by the flames of a sintering kiln. Make a piece of sturdy, ceramic eye candy with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of paint-your-own pottery at Glaze and Glass on Long Pond Road.
At Glaze and Glass, artists practice painting pieces of pottery inside a newly remodeled, 3,000-square-foot studio that offers a variety of classes and open studio sessions for working with pottery and glass. More than 500 blank pottery selections are available for painting, such as pumpkin dishes ($16), beaded martini glasses ($26), and cupcake banks ($21). After choosing your pottery, a vast collection of stencils, stamps, and paint colors can be used to design your work of art upon the blank, white ceramic slate, like a philosopher inscribing a spiritual treatise in the margins of a celebrity tabloid. Once you’ve made the proper pigmentation adjustments to your high-top shoe ($18) or Indy car racer ($18), Glaze and Glass will apply a glaze and condemn your work to a trial by fire right on the premises. Completed pottery is generally available for pick-up after one week.
Glaze and Glass doesn’t charge a fee for using its studio or supplies; customers only pay for the actual piece they’re painting. The studio sometimes hosts special events, so swing by for Ladies Night on Thursdays or Story Hour on Saturdays. Use today’s Groupon to produce a unique, beautifully personalized vessel that could easily replace the priceless Ming vase you knocked off your friend’s heavily guarded desk last week.
