annual Cup Auction

Do you have an extra handmade cup in your studio or your cupboard that you want to donate? Please participate in our cup auction today! The thoughtful generosity and continued support of artists like you help to make The CCC a vibrant and important part of our local and greater arts community. Cups are due at the Clay Center no later than Monday, Dec. 1 — send cups to: Cup Auction 201, Carbondale Clay Center, 135 Main St., Carbondale, CO 81623. The Carbondale Clay Center is a non-profit organization. Your donation is tax deductible as allowed by law.

The event will be at the Clay Center on Friday, Dec. 5 from 6 to 8 p.m. for our annual Cup Auction event. Each year our cup auction gains more momentum and popularity, and has become very well attended, drawing many discriminating collectors and supporters to the Clay Center for this one night only auction opportunity. With over 200 cups available, donated by local and national artists, your support of our cup auction helps to support our mission: to achieve awareness of the ceramic arts by building community through diverse, clay related activities, accessible to all.
