Thank You!

This year's Mud Ball at the Front and Palmer was a blast and we owe it all to YOU, our wonderful, creative, and loyal friends! The event was successful beyond our wildest dreams. Altogether, with every ticket, sponsorship, live auction, silent auction, cup grab, and raffle sheet sold, Mud Ball raised just shy of $110,000 — exceeding our expectations by thousands. We are beyond grateful for all the positive energy and generous support you have shown us. It's what keeps us going strong, inspiring artists, students, teachers, schoolchildren, and an enthused public around the art and craft of clay. Meanshile, SAVE THE DATE: next year's Mud Ball will be on April 17, 2020.

Live Auction

The Mud Ball Auction was full of special hi-end prizes that had been generously donated. It takes over $5,000 per day to run The Clay Studio, and funds raised through the Mud Ball Auction are a critical support.
