The Coastal Carolina Clay Guild, a nonprofit organization, was founded in 2007 by a group of Wilmington potters to promote and exchange information about all types of ceramic arts and to provide mutual support, encouragement, and education for its members and for the community. Its membership now includes over 100 ceramic artists from the southeast coastal region. The guild offers workshops each year with nationally known sculptors and potters, provides community outreach, and uses its membership dues to offer scholarships and grants to its members.
