Our Mission -
Our mission is to provide an opportunity for art lovers to expand their exposure and understanding of various types of art and functional wares made from clay. It is also our goal to bring the art collector and artist face to face to broaden one's understanding of what goes in to creating these beautiful works made from various types of clay.
Each year, the 14 core members work hard to bring guest artists in to the Tampa Bay area to join them in their annual "Tampa Bay Tour de Clay". Generally there are 24 to 30 clay artists represented on the tour of four studios located in the Tampa Bay Area. Activities are planned to make the experience even greater: Kiln Openings; Studio Presentations; Guest Artist Introductions; Pottery Demonstrations; Hands On Experiences; Pottery Raffles supporting local charities; and more.
The Tour always takes place the second weekend in December, many of our guests and collectors return each year. Collectors and art lovers travel from near and far with great anticipation of fun and look forward to making yet another purchase for that special someone, even if that someone just happens to be themselves.
Come join us this year - December 10th & 11th, 2022.
