Art is hard, especially when fortified by the flames of a sintering kiln. Make a piece of sturdy, ceramic eye candy with today's deal: for $10, you get $25 worth of paintable pottery and studio time at The Pottery Piazza in Plainville.
The roomy studio at The Pottery Piazza contains floor-to-ceiling shelves stacked with more than 1500 pieces of blank ready-to-paint pottery. Pieces start at $2, with the majority under $20, allowing you to stealthily and affordably replace your mother's antique plates that were destroyed in that unfortunate air-hockey accident. Stencils, design books, and professional advice from resident artists are always available to aid in your creative quest. More than 100 shades of glazed paints spanning the entire color wheel are on hand for you to use in decorating your choice of ceramics with a self-portrait that will age in your stead, thoroughly creeping out houseguests. Studio time costs $4 per half hour, with a maximum daily fee of $10. The Pottery Piazza is the perfect place for friends and families to produce one-of-a-kind imagery. Of-age artisans are also invited to bring their own booze and snacks for a truly memorable night of increasingly potable crafting.

The Pottery Piazza
Shelves stretch across the walls of The Pottery Piazza, abounding with more than 1,500 bisque mugs, plates, and figurines in need of decoration. Beside them sit stencils, brushes, bottles of paint, and more than 100 types of glaze. At the tables, clients adorn their blank bisque canvases with paint while sipping from their favorite home-brought wine. Staff members stroll up and down the store, eagerly awaiting their chance to offer advice on the best ways to design a piece, perform artistic techniques, or accidentally drop incriminating evidence into the kiln. During fairer weather, painters lay claim to the tables on the front patio, painting, snacking, and socializing alfresco style. Throughout the year, the shop hosts special events, including private parties, kids' summer camps, and BYOB ladies nights.
