Our Mission

Our mission is to promote community awareness, understanding and appreciation of ceramics. We encourage artistic and professional growth among our members through workshops and sharing ideas. We promote the craft of pottery to the public through an annual show and sale and with community outreach with member demonstrations and exhibits in public schools, community festivals and fund raising that addresses hunger issues, by annually donating hundreds of hand made bowls and scholarships.
