Glass provides a resting place for wine, evening wear for Cinderellas, and a more dramatic exit from 44th-floor windows for Bruce Willises. Shatter artistic inhibitions with today's Groupon: for $19, you get a blow-your-own-glass activity at Uptown Glassworks in Renton (up to a $50 value). Glass turkeys and snowmen are not included in this deal.

A team of experienced glass-blowers at Uptown Glassworks helps students forge liquid glass into multicolored artworks during blow-your- own-glass sessions. Craft such pretty trinkets as a teardrop-shaped Christmas-tree ornament (a $29.50 value), a delicate yellow calla lily with a gossamer green stem (a $35 value), or a statue of Teddy Roosevelt horse diving. Once templates are chosen, experienced glass artisans pull a globule of molten glass from a furnace set to 2,000 degrees. Molders then take the reins and apply the colors of their choice while manipulating the fledgling fixture into its predetermined shape. To ensure quality, knowledgeable staffers refrain from singing opera and inspect the piece for imperfections after it cools in an Uptown kiln for 24 hours. Uptown Glassworks's ambience awakens artistry with vaulted ceilings, generous space, and rafter beams set within a building built in 1902.

Awesome place! Be aware though that you won't be able to take your creation home the same day; you have to come back in 4 days to pick up.
