Welcome to the web site for the West Michigan Potters Guild, and thank you for your interest in hand made contemporary ceramics.
This guild is a group of clay artists organized to improve their own ceramic skills by providing a stimulating and inspirational discussion of technical problems, mutual interests and shared successes, also to aquaint the general public with standards, ethics and appreciation of ceramic art. This is accomplished through lectures, discussions, seminars, workshops and group exhibitions.These events are organized and sponsored by the guild and its members.
Membership is open to all who are interested in the goals of this organization. The guild is currently over 80 members who specialize in a variety of firing techniques and construction methods in both functional and non-functional forms. The public is invited to attend workshops and bi-annual shows sponsored by the guild and experience the wealth of talent and knowledge this guild has to offer.
