Live Auction

The Mud Ball Auction is full of special hi-end prizes that have been generously donated to support our fundraising efforts. Funds raised through the Mudball Auction support our operations. It takes over $5,000 per day to run The Clay Studio. Help us reach our goal and continue to fulfill our mission.
