Our Mission Statement:
The Orchard Valley Ceramic Arts Guild fosters a creative, innovative, and supportive environment for the education of students, professionals, and the public in the ceramic arts.
OVCAG traditionally holds two major annual events for our membership, Art in Clay and Clay Carnival.
For those that wish to sell their wares, our big November Holiday sale in Palo Alto at the Lucie Stern Community Center; Art in Clay, where we showcase roughly 60 of our local member artist in one giant sale for all your gifting needs!
For those that wish to learn more about our craft, we have a big one day workshop called Clay Carnival located at Clay Planet in Santa Clara. You can take part in up to 4 of the 8 offered sessions. Past topics included everything from the more technical side of Kiln Maintenance to the more artistic focused Texturing and Tumbler designs. Its a blast and a great opportunity to catch up with other clay community members and get inspired.
We would love to see you at these, or any of our upcoming events!
