Established in 1958 in southeastern Michigan as the Michigan Potters’ Association and in 2003 renamed Michigan Ceramic Art Association. We have grown to a statewide organization of over 300 members. Our membership includes studio artists, art educators, galleries, art organizations, potters guilds, students and collectors.

Our Mission:
To Support the Ceramic Arts in Michigan.

The Michigan Ceramic Art Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. To fund our programs, we rely heavily on donations from individuals and businesses to augment dues collected from our members. Even more important, we rely on the generosity of artists who donate their time for workshops, on institutions who contribute space, materials and funds, and on a small group of dedicated volunteers who spend countless hours planning and implementing MCAA activities.
