 self-expression through clay



We are sculptural, expressive, and functional artists who come together to gain inspiration and connect with others who share our art.


Our members encompass an amazing range of artistic endeavors and creative techniques within the Ceramic Arts: throwing, handbuilding, sculpting, slipcasting, low, medium, high fire, raku, salt, wood firings, and even glass and mixed media.


NCG  and its members bring clay to the larger community through exhibitions, lectures, fundraisers, sales and in coordination with other arts and community organizations and schools.
