The Clay Case
The Clay Case is your studio-to-go.
Our latest innovation is busting out of the studio and into Pittsburgh homes - bringing everything you need to create with clay at home. This kit is perfect for artists of all skill levels, even beginners.
The Clay Case comes with all the materials, tools, instruction, and inspiration to help you express your creative voice. The Clay Case brings families together to be creative and learn about clay. You can bring your finished creations to Union Project’s studio to be fired in the kiln, get a Clay Case refill, try out the potter's wheel, and see artists at work in a community studio.
