Sponsor Mother of All Pottery Sales 2024

Sponsor Mother of All Pottery Sales 2024

Union Project will hold our annual Mother of All Pottery Sales on Saturday, May 11, 2024.

We bring together artists from throughout Western Pennsylvania to display and sell their work, present live demonstrations, and provide hands-on clay activities. This event unites ceramic artists and lovers, promotes locally made ceramics, and shares clay education. Attendance is approx. 1,000 people.

This family-friendly celebration of clay is made possible by generous community and corporate support.

Sponsorship Makes An Impact

  • $500 provides art educators for the event, offering hands-on clay activities so that everyone can have a tactile experience.
  • $1,000 supports demonstrating artists, purchasing materials and providing a stipend for the master potter (or potters) to share their skills during the event.
  • $2,500 sponsors the promotion of the event, providing marketing support to all participating artists and helping to cultivate a community of both art lovers and buyers, resulting in greater community wealth.
