Celebrating 13 Years

Founded in 2011, this symposium was created to honor the great accomplishments of women ceramic artists today. The objective of the symposium is to create an environment that is full of ideas, images, demonstrations, artwork, and discussions.

It is intended as a place for learning and inspiration. It is a place for everyone to share stories of struggles and successes. It is a place to see where we stand in the present, to better understand our past and to support each other in our future.

2023 Presenters: Louise Deroualle, Sanam Emami, Ursula Hargens, Adero Willard
Guest Speaker: Sana Musasama
Director: Dara Hartman
Founding Director: Donna Polseno
