Baltimore Clayworks is a unique, vibrant and community-centered ceramics institution. Our organization was founded by nine artists in 1980 as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We are known for our attentiveness to our neighborhood, and possess a national and international reputation for artistic excellence, artists’ support, and community involvement.
We provide affordable studio space, equipment, and professional opportunities; offer hands-on studio classes for children and adults; present exhibitions curated or juried by the best professional artists in the field of ceramics; and have a dedicated community arts program that partners with local community organizations to bring art experiences into the lives of at-risk children and marginalized adults. We also bring top-notch artists to Baltimore through our residency program.
The mission of Baltimore Clayworks is to develop, sustain, and promote an artist-centered community that provides outstanding educational, artistic, and collaborative programs in the ceramic arts.
