The Orchard Valley Ceramic Arts Guild is a non-profit group of potters that fosters a creative, innovative and supportive environment for the education of students, professionals and the public in the ceramic arts.
In 2000 a group of seven potters from the Sunnyvale Parks and Recreation ceramic studio met to brainstorm on the idea of creating a pottery guild. The results of that first meeting was an ambitious plan that covered every aspect of their common vision - a non-profit guild supporting local clay artists.
Today there are over 150 members including clay artists, corporate sponsors, students and patrons. The Orchard Valley Ceramic Arts Guild presents many workshops throughout the year as well as an annual sale of guild member work. The public is encouraged and welcome to attend. All potters as well as those who are simply interested in developing an appreciation for the ceramic arts are always welcome.
The Guild is a California non-profit, 501(c)3 corporation.
