Mother of all Pottery Sales set for Highland Park

| Monday, April 21, 2014, 9:04 p.m.

Union Project, 801 N. Negley Ave., Highland Park, will host the first-ever Mother of all Pottery Sales from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 26.

The event, created to celebrate ceramics and bring together the Pittsburgh region ceramic community, will feature local artists exhibiting and selling their work — everything from functional ceramics like mugs and teapots to sculptural ceramics.

Some of Pittsburgh's best clay artists will demonstrate their skills on the potter's wheel and their handbuilding techniques.

The Mother of all Pottery Sales is part of Union Project's weekend event, the Spring Thing. This annual community event welcomes spring with a house party on April 25 and the pottery sale on April 26.

The house party, from 5 to 8 p.m. April 25, will feature live music from vocalist Anqwenique Wingfield, cornhole and food trucks. The events are free and for all ages. Details: www.unionproject.org

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
