Art of the Pot is a collective of Austin based potters committed to
expanding the reach and understanding of contemporary studio pottery
through studio tours, public lectures and gallery and museum

Art of the Pot was founded in 2004 as a way to bring some much-needed
emphasis and interest to the contemporary pottery scene here in
Austin.  The goals of the founding members were modest at that time;
invite a few potters from out of town to come to their studios for a
weekend show and sale and give the public a chance to see something new
in the field of contemporary pottery.

After over 10 years, the modest beginnings have bloomed into a fully
formed studio tour with national recognition.  Annually the Art of the
Pot principles host 10 or more invited guests from across the country in
their studios for an event-filled weekend.  This year’s host are
Melissa Mencini, Ryan McKerley, Lisa Orr, and Claudia Reese. With
funding from the City of Austin’s Cultural Arts Grant our programming
has expanded to include public lectures and educational events.  We
continue to develop wonderful and unique partnerships with local
restaurants, galleries and businesses that help us further the goal of
our group, to expand the reach of contemporary studio pottery throughout
Austin, Texas and the greater community.
