Who We Are


The Carolina Clay Guild is a non-exclusive organization of people who work with clay. Our purpose is to provide the opportunity for members and the public to gain experience with ceramics. We aim to increase skill, with, and appreciation of, clay works.

The Guild was founded in 1985. Members include production potters and clay sculptors, professional and amateur, throughout the Southeast region.
