Ceramic pots and humans are more alike than most think—they both have ancient origins and are generally stuffed with entire batches of cookies. Store treats outside the body with today’s Groupon for artisan items from the fine-craft gallery at Springfield Pottery. This Groupon is valid only toward merchandise and excludes classes.

With 3,400 square feet devoted to the fine art of mud molding, Springfield Pottery hosts the works of well-known clay shapers from across the country. Customers can stop in and peruse a selection of handcrafted ceramics, such as a Nathan Falter mug ($35), a set of Nena Potts earrings ($42), and a John Preus earthen cereal bowl ($28) pilfered from the footlocker of a terra-cotta soldier. Pottery jars from Brent Skinner ($125) fashionably fill empty corners, and a wooden bowl from Brad McCullum ($225) outfits miniature dollhouses with makeshift hot tubs. Serving dishes and containers by Sherri Alexander brighten rooms with a delicious lemon-lime glaze and come with the disclaimer that guests may not know when to stop eating once the plate is clean.
Although classes are not included in today’s Groupon, Springfield Pottery also educates aspiring cup crafters of all skill levels with classes in the art of spinning, glazing, and firing clay.
