Mobile Studio: Clay for All!

Union Project's Wheel Mobile studio is taking ceramic making on the road!

Union Project envisions a world where every Allegheny County resident has a piece of handmade pottery on their shelf that they created themselves, and as a result, a deeper appreciation of the process for creating ceramic artwork and objects.

The new Wheel Mobile ceramic studio is bringing that dream one step closer to reality. The ceramic studio is housed in a vehicle equipped with clay, tools, a potter's wheel, a mobile Raku kiln, and trained arts educators who lead participants in hands-on ceramic activities.



Union Project purchased a Ford Transit Cargo Van and decked it out with everything needed to become the Wheel Mobile!

The Wheel Mobile made its debut in December 2022 at Handmade Arcade, the Pittsburgh area's largest independent craft fair. Union Project hit the road in 2023 with more events, taking ceramic art everywhere in Allegheny County! Be on the lookout for the Wheel Mobile in your neighborhood.
