What You'll Get
The existence of prehistoric pottery shards paints a clear picture of ancient artisanal practices while highlighting ancestral clumsiness. Leave behind traces of your own civilization with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of paint-your-own pottery at Your Pot's Desire in University City.
Your Pot's Desire flexes the creative muscles of burgeoning artisans with decorative and functional paintable pottery. Guests can choose from a vast selection of unadorned bisque pieces, from 12 oz. mugs ($10) and 8-inch plates ($10), to banks and boxes ($15–25), before applying bright swatches of color to their smooth, supple surfaces. The helpful staff can inspire flagging imaginations with idea books, sponges, stencils, and paint-splattered muses until newly embellished pieces are ready to be glazed and immersed in the calcifying fire of the kiln. Mosaic-minded artistes can glue small tiles or tessares onto a surface of their choice (starting at $9.99) such as a cupcake, dragonfly, or silhouette of Nathan Hale before solidifying their image at home with a take-home container of grout.
The studio’s shelves of raw materials and brightly painted walls excite the right hemispheres of any aged or experienced brain, and extra-avid painters can apply their Groupon toward days on end of pottery palettes with Your Pot’s Desire summer camp.
