Objective Clay is a collective of eight ceramic artists that developed out of the Utilitarian Clay Symposium at Arrowmont back in the fall of 2012.  From our early conversations, a goal was born to support each other, foster our careers, and contribute to our community.  In the years since our first meeting in 2012, we have grown into a vibrant, open, group of makers and educators.  

Through the Objective Clay Collective, we both sell our work on our website and gather together to represent our work at yearly events. These direct relationships and conversations with our community who purchase and use our work is an important aspect of our collective.  Our continued aim is to provide connection and encouragement between our members and our supporters, while banding together for events to support OC artists and engage the broader clay community.
