What does Ceramics New Zealand do?

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.

Our organisation has a rich history in supporting some of the country’s most influential artisan makers through our unique platforms, such as our National Exhibitions, to show and discuss their work with the wider community. We provide opportunities for development and connection through our workshops and touring artist programs with both local and international artists.

As part of our mandate we publish the national journal Ceramics New Zealand, to ensure high level content is available and to engage readers into deeper conversations about ceramics. We maintain archives and resources and believe knowledge and opportunities for growth should be accessible to all.

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