Ceramics Club

Ceramics Club  

The Ceramics Club is geared towards encouraging artists while exposing them to a variety of glazing, firing, and ceramic building techniques. Both gas and wood fire kilns are used. We have an engaging and supportive atmosphere and look forward to expanding our membership to community members as well. As a club, we participate in community workshops, Empty Bowls in Bowling Green, and the National Ceramic Convention, NCECA. Come visit us at the wood kiln for one of our pizza parties while we get down and muddy with good pals.
