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 $12, you get $25 worth of paint-your-own-pottery at Meg-Art, a pottery studio and espresso bar in Huntersville.
Meg-Art’s selection of paintable plates, pots, mugs, and vases numbers more than 1,000; items start as low as $2, and most cost between $10 and $30, with all paint, glaze, firing, and studio time included. Grab a blank plate and paint a meal upon it, stencil a cup with springtime flowers, or decorate a picture frame worthy of being hung inside itself. Meg-Art’s friendly staff can help you conceptualize a design and nurture it to life, though the studio itself, which has walls painted with bright colors and cartoony characters, can offer ample inspiration.
