About Us
Central Maine Clay Artists is a group of professional potters and ceramic artists working in the Kennebec Valley Area. We work to promote handmade craft and the ceramic arts in Central Maine and around the state. Toward that end, we offer workshops, sales, and other events where people can learn about, make, or purchase claywork.

Though we all work in clay, we are a diverse group. Some of us are full-time artists, some educators, and some hold other jobs as well. The work we make ranges from whimsical to spiritual, functional to purely decorative, classic to funky.
