What does Ceramics New Zealand do?

Ceramics New Zealand maintains this directory of studio potters and community studios.

The Ceramics Association of New Zealand (Ceramics NZ) is a non-profit organisation and the national body for ceramics in Aotearoa New Zealand. We are here to support all who engage with ceramics from practitioners to collectors, at every level, by providing access to education, knowledge, events, opportunities, and community. Our aim is to build a strong and inclusive ceramics sector.

Creating an inclusive, supportive environment with opportunities for connection and collaboration.

Making education and resources accessible, sharing knowledge, and providing pathways for growth.

Honouring what has come before in order to create a vibrant future.
