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 "Empty Bowls" is 25 years old!


This year we celebrate 25 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 a major exhibition, a massive weekend workshop extravaganza, two fund raisers 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 this month.  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.  The workshop was held in conjunction with the current From the Ground Up XXVIII Exhibition.  Steven was the juror.  Twenty three people enjoyed learning about Steven's techniques for spraying glazes.
