The 2016 Hull Pottery Association commemorative is now available to be ordered. Deadline for ordering is July 1, 2016. The 2016 HPA Commemorative is modeled after the Hull trumpet and drum. This piece will certainly make a welcome addition to any collection.
The commemoratives are available to current HPA members only and each member is encouraged to purchase the 2015 Commemorative in support of the organization’s efforts to keep the heritage of the Hull Pottery Company alive for generations to come. Past Hull Pottery Company employees (honorary HPA members) may also order the Commemoratives. HPA members may order up to TWO commemoratives.
Commemorative sales are the primary fund raiser for HPA and are crucial for the fiscal stability of the organization. Such support helps HPA continue to fund newsletters, the website, national/regional shows and HPA scholarships.
To order send your name, address, phone number and email along with a check payable to: The Hull Pottery Association, c/o Bob Kirkwood, 10375 East Athens Rd., Roseville, Ohio 43777. Membership verification will be done via the membership data base.
The 2016 commemorative is $55 (limit two per member/employee) and can either be picked up at the Crooksville Show or shipped. If you want the commemorative shipped, please add $10 to your check for shipping for EACH commemorative. Commemoratives will be shipped following the July show.

Hull Pottery Association (HPA) commemoratives were first produced in 1995. They are available for purchase only by HPA members and are produced in limited numbers. Each commemorative is made only once.
HPA members are asked for their recommendations for the commemoratives. Each year the recommendations are narrowed down to three selections. HPA members then vote for their favorite at the annual HPA National Show in July in Crooksville, OH. The winning selection is produced for the following year. A local pottery is commissioned to produce the piece.
HPA members may buy one or two commemoratives. They may either pick up their commemoratives at the HPA National show or asked that the pieces be shipped for an addition cost. Commemoratives from over the years may be found for sale at various HPA shows. Prices vary.
