Union Project brings together countless community members to celebrate the beauty of the Earth through the public art garden project Community Blooms.
Participants use ceramic hand-building techniques to make a unique flower blossom out of clay. Union Project then takes each blossom and fires it in their kilns, adds a stem, and "plants" it in an outdoor community art garden for all to enjoy, where it will continue to bloom all summer long.
Alongside their ceramic flowers, participants use a mix of terracotta clay, compost, soil, and seeds to create seed bombs to take home and plant. The wildflowers that grow from the seed bombs will help support the region's butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds.
