The commemoratives are available to current HPA members only and each member is encouraged to purchase the 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.
There are two ways to order the commemorative.

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.
