Kickstarter Campaign

Kickstarter Campaign

With the addition of a new energy efficient BLAAUW gas kiln, our studio can continue to offer firings at our current rates, avoiding an increase in fees for our students and members. Gas and energy prices are rising, and arts funding is being cut all over the country. We need to remain an available and affordable resource to those who want, and need art experiences.

HART Benefit

HART Benefit

HART Benefit Saturday, May 20th 9-5pm We’ve teamed up with Homeless Animal Rescue Team of Cincinnati to raise money for their organization. The fundraiser will have a few different parts: 1. Keepsakes: The entire month of May we will donate 10% of the profits from any animal keepsakes purchased. If you have a beloved pet in your life, consider getting their paws imprinted into a beautiful plaque made by our very own Laurie Wright! For more information or examples, check out our sample wall in the Pottery Painting Studio or contact Laurie! 2. Open Wheel: The profits from our Family Open Wheel class on May 20th will be donated to HART. We’re hoping to fill that class, so if you know of any friends or family who’ve always wanted to try the wheel but haven’t done so yet, this is their chance!  Register here. 3. Adoption Event: HART will be bringing adoptable dogs to QCC from 12-3pm! This is great exposure for the pups and hopefully we can get some animals into their forever homes! 4. Pottery Painting Studio: 15% of all pieces painted in our Pottery Painting Studio will go directly to HART. This is an amazing activity to do with kids or a group of friends. Bring some wine or snacks and enjoy a relaxing day painting pottery! 5. Pottery Sale: For all gallery sales this day, QCC will donate 10% to HART. Just like the Holiday Bazaar, artists will still receive 80% of their sales. We’re hoping to focus on pieces animal related like food/water bowls, bird houses, pet tags, or pieces with animal designs on...

Empty Bowls: Throw-a-Thon and Event

Mark your calendars!  If you love throwing bowls and donating your time towards an incredible cause, join us for our annual Throw-a-Thon!  If production pottery isn’t your strong suit, consider contributing in another way:  help us by transporting pots to/from drying racks, cleaning up pots, organizing and labeling, the list goes on and on!  There will be plenty to do, and we appreciate all the help we can get.  We’ll also have someone running a pinch-pot demo, so if you’re more of a hand builder we’d love to have you here making bowls!  Bring a side dish or your favorite beverage.  Let’s make this event epic! All bowls will be donated to the Clay Alliance for the 18th annual Empty Bowls, a benefit for the Freestore Foodbank’s Kids Cafe.  Past Empty Bowls events have raised over $223,000 for Kids Cafe in the fight against childhood hunger.  Visit the Clay Alliance’s website for more details and to purchase tickets for the event on November...
