Sonoma Ceramics is Sonoma Community.
Sonoma Ceramics provides an accessible, approachable, and supportive studio environment where artists and makers of all skill levels can awaken their practice of the ceramic arts. We thrive on inspiring people of all ages to discover the tactile world of clay, on supporting the professional development of career artists, and above all, on creating community-centered programs that bring diverse people together for moments of intersectional and multi-generational learning. We’re here for our local community, our global clay community, and for the magical moments that happen when those come together.
“A practice is not so much about achieving a goal, avoiding something, improving yourself, or making your wishes come true, as about creating a positive environment, internally and externally, for the awakening process to take hold. A practice provides a path that we may walk on, fall from, climb back up on, and relate to life in a direct and dignified way”Richard Strozzi Heckler, Holding The Center
