420 SHOW OPEN CALL.png

Wildfire Ceramic Studio would like to invite you to apply to the second annual 2nd Annual High Fire Show! WCS is excited to showcase the unique ways artists are using clay to create artistic, utilitarian objects to celebrate the ritual, and everyday use of Marijuana.

 

This year Wildfire Ceramic Studio will be partnering with We’d to celebrate the legalization of Marijuana in Montana. WCS will also be hosting a food truck and live music.

 

As Marijuana becomes legal and more accessible in more and more states, WCS is striving to help raise awareness and support against the unfair circumstances of those who have suffered criminal convictions due to criminalization of cannabis.

 

We are donating 10% of all proceeds from our 4/20 Show to the Last Prisoner Project. Last year because of the talented artists who participated and all of the wonderful community support, WCS was able to donate $199.50 to the Last Prisoner Project. Join us in our efforts to surpass our previous donation!

 

If you would like to learn more about the Last Prisoner Project please visit their website:

 

“The Last Prisoner Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to cannabis criminal justice reform. LPP was founded in 2019 out of the belief that if anyone is able to profit and build wealth in the legal cannabis industry, those individuals must also work to release and rebuild the lives of those who have suffered from cannabis criminalization.” -www.lastprisonerproject.org
