RIVERSIDE – Gifts in time for Mother's Day are just one of the offerings of the Riverside Arts Center.

One can create a custom-made fused glass pendant with the help of resident glass artist Shawn Vincent.

"Pick your favorite glass combinations … and Shawn will design your piece, fire it and deliver in time for Mother’s Day," a news release stated.

RAC will take orders until 3 p.m. May 6. Pieces will be created Wednesday evening and fired. The pieces will be finished up on Thursday and Friday and delivered by the weekend.

The cost is $36 for members and $40 for nonmembers.

Delivery is in Riverside, North Riverside, Lyons, Brookfield, Berwyn, La Grange,
Oak Park, Austin and Belmont-Craigin.

Boredum Buster

RAC has created Boredom Buster Box projects, including separate ceramic ones for adults and for children.

The latest Boredom Buster Box is geared towards adults or can be done with the whole family. The box contains your choice of a pre-made professional piece of bisque ware pottery ready to paint. You just add your creativity and inspiration. Each box supplies everything you need to create a beautiful ceramic piece, the release stated.

Included are one piece of professional bisque ware (your choice), six underglaze paint colors, one paintbrush and idea sheets for painting and decorating. The cost is $50 for members, $55 for nonmembers.

"Work at your own pace. When you're finished, repack in the original box for pickup. Pieces will be fired and returned to you, or available for pickup after shelter-in-place [period] is lifted," the release stated.
