CERAMICS

Members can purchase clay through the Union’s website. After purchasing clay, email Sarah@u-ca.org to let her know what color of clay you would like and to schedule a pick up date and time. (Please allow 48 hours after time of purchase for clay pick up.)


For Co-Op Members interested in firing their work at The Union, the work MUST be made out of Cone 6 clay purchased from The Union to ensure the safety of the ceramic studio equipment. Studio glazes are available upon request.


Bisque & glazed work pick up – there will be a cart with work ready for pick up placed in the courtyard during the dates and times listed below. PLEASE PROVIDE YOUR OWN BOXES & PACKING MATERIAL!


ALL WORK MUST BE DRY FOR BISQUE FIRING & ALL GLAZED WORK MUST BE GLAZED WITH CONE 6 GLAZES & THE WORK MUST HAVE WIPED BOTTOMS!
