Hand-painted pottery has a rich legacy of storytelling, from the Grecian urns that document the perils of Orpheus and Eurydice to modern coffee mugs that foretell epic tales of the world’s greatest grandpa. Paint your own story with today’s Groupon to Thru the Fire Ceramics. Choose between the following options:
- For $7, you get $14 worth of pottery painting for one person.
- For $20, you get $40 worth of pottery painting for five or more people with an optional private party.
Thru the Fire Ceramic will relocate to its new location at 3030 Orchard Hill in San Antonio on February 1, 2012.
The kiln-igniting curators at Thru the Fire Ceramics guide patrons in hand-painting artistic expressions onto decorative and functional ceramic pieces. Customers can select from hundreds of plain, unpainted craftworks ($1–$200) such as mugs, piggy banks, and statues of Civil War generals to adorn in up to six water-soluble glazes. Painters are free to take as much time as they like in brushing their pieces before turning them over to staff members, who seal in the designs with complimentary clear glazing and kiln firing.
Those who opt for the group option can create their masterpieces at a group party before or after business hours to celebrate a special occasion or privately paint mugs with embarrassing adolescent yearbook pictures.
