WAGNER POTTERS ASSOCIATION
Who We Are
For over 40 years, the Wagner Potters Association has been a vibrant and dynamic part of the SIUE community. Each year, the student led WPA hosts numerous public events, workshops, and pottery sales both on campus and in the greater Edwardsville Area. Fundraising assists students in attending conferences, applying to exhibitions, purchasing supplies, bringing visiting artists to campus, and more.

Every March, we conduct our annual “Chili Bowl Sale” on the Stratton Quad, selling ceramic bowls made by WPA members to the SIUE community. We provide hot chili, various soups, and toppings with every purchase of a bowl.
Lots of mugs to choose from!
At the end of each semester, the WPA organizes, promotes, and operates a two-day pottery sale in the Art and Design building. This event draws hundreds of SIUE students, faculty, and community members from the entire St. Louis metro region to the Art and Design building.
