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 profession 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 San Joaquin Potters Guild supports the Visions and Clay annual exhibition sponsored by San Joaquin Delta College, an annual student scholarship and a high school art exhibition with our annual Fine Arts Festival.
The members of the San Joaquin Potters Guild represents artists in Northern and Central California.
