Whether you’re a passionate professional or an enthusiastic amateur, you need to share your insights, questions, and comments with people who understand you. Making pottery can be a solitary pursuit. Talking and learning about it doesn’t have to be.


As a member of Potters Council you have added your name to the growing list of potters and ceramic artists who are proud to count themselves among the membership of the Potters Council.


Working in clay can sometimes be a solitary pursuit. But there are times that we need to share ideas, ask questions, search for solutions. There are times when we need a community of people who think like us, who feel like us, who love clay like us. That community is Potters Council.


Welcome to Potters Council–a distinguished group of artist and artisans, passionate professionals and avid amateurs.


A nurturing, creative community
The Potters Council was formed to create a community of potters and ceramic artists from around the world. This is a community of potters dedicated to supporting each other by sharing ideas, insights, and advice. Community is important. We can all share techniques and tips and add new dimensions to each other’s works–and our own. You never know what will inspire your work or influence your next project. But that’s part of the joy of pottery! As a member of the Potters Council, you’re part of a creative, compassionate community of people who understand you.
