Our member-supported group was founded in 2002 by regional ceramic artists led by Tom Herndon and Ben Huber. The group was founded to help potters grow professionally and provide a supportive network. The group’s steady growth was fortified during the NCECA 2007 conference held in Louisville, KY.  Connecting through regular meetings, workshops, presentations, and other enriching events the group formed a strong member base. The group went into hiatus in 2013.• Previous events include Bluegrass Bourbon (2013) a national juried exhibition of ceramic bottles and glasses.


Louisville clay welcomes ceramic artists and enthusiasts to join and attend four events a year including our annual Holiday Party & Gift Exchange. All current and prospective members are welcome to attend board meetings where events are planned and order maintained. Learn about membership and join.
