Artist of the Month - San Joaquin Potters GuildArtist Reception: August 9th, 2014 | 4-7:00pm
Ceramic & Glass Art
A non-profit organization, the San Joaquin Potters Guild was founded in 1991 by a small group of clay artists who were interested in the camaraderie and inspiration that could be gained by association with other ceramic artists. Over the years the guild has grown and now includes glass artists.
A friendly, diverse and active group, the San Joaquin Potters Guild is committed to maintaining high standards of craftsmanship and design in clay and glass. The organization encourages innovation and professional growth in technical skills and aesthetics; promotes public appreciation and understanding of ceramic and glass art; and provides a medium for exchange of ideas and concerns within the field.
The members of the San Joaquin Potters Guild represent artists in San Joaquin and surrounding counties (Tuolumne, Calaveras, Mariposa, Stanislaus, Sacramento, Amador and Contra Costa). New members are welcome and are not limited to these counties. We welcome clay and glass artists from throughout Northern California.
