Like falling in love or sneaking penguins out of the zoo under your muumuu, creative expression is key to what it means to be human. Stay civil with today's Groupon: for $18, you a get a glass-fusion studio session, including studio fee, six-inch base piece of glass and shaping fee (a $37 value), at U B the Artist.
At this family-friendly studio, artisanal acolytes can discover the amorphous merits of glass, melding shapes and shards into a delicate, diaphanous work of art. Trained glass guides will lead you through the glass-piecing process, from selecting the glass base you'll need to realize your glass vase to summoning the appropriate genie to occupy your piece. After adding layer upon layer of colourful glass accents onto your preferred pastiche, simply leave the work with one of U B the Artist's professional glass wranglers, who will corral crystalline cutouts into the fused shape of your choice, from iridescent centerpiece to bold-hued wall hanging. Peruse U B the Artist's glass gallery here. Parties of six or more should call ahead to make reservations.
