The Carbondale Clay Center exists to promote excellence in the ceramic arts and to build  community through clay related activities. Our mission is to serve the community by offering strong, diversified, high quality ceramic arts educational programs and providing support for ceramic artists and potters through teaching, exhibiting and educational opportunities.  


Carbondale Clay Center welcomes all to explore the art of ceramics, from the casually curious to the established artist. Clay is a universal language connecting us to people, cultures and world history. Knowledge of ceramic processes is shared through class and workshop offerings, residencies, lectures, gallery exhibits, and programs that reach out to schools and special groups. The Center is committed to a learning environment that is supportive and exciting.
