While our membership is as varied as the colors of the glazes we use, our common bond is a love of clay!


Potters' Guild of Las Cruces Celebrates 37 years


Calling one and all to join the Potters' Guild on a major bowl making extravaganza on Friday, May 18th from 9-4 and Saturday, may 19th from 1-4 in support of El Caldito Soup Kitchen and Empty Bowls.  Hundreds of bowls are needed, and this is a good time to get started.  We will have cone 10 clay, so all you high fire throwers can get busy! We hope to have a good turn out.  El Caldito will provide lunch.


This year we celebrate 37 years of organizing local potters into an active group of socially conscious mudders.  Guild members are looking forward to another very busy year, including a schedule that includes monthly meetings with interesting programs, a major collaborative exhibition called Fire & Fiber, a workshop or two, our annual community service project, Empty Bowls, and a large end-of-the-year sale.


Activities will begin again soon with monthly meetings and demonstrations or discussions by our many talented members.  Membership forms can be downloaded from this site and dues are to be collected when your year is up.  Join us for another year of "everything pottery" and get involved by joining the Board of Directors or hosting a meeting.  Long live clay life!


In the image below, members attend the Steven Hill Workshop held at the DACC Ceramics Studio on August 11-13th, 2017.  The workshop was held in conjunction with the most recent From the Ground Up XXVIII Exhibition.  Steven was the juror.  Twenty three people enjoyed learning about Steven's techniques for spraying glazes.
