Minnesota Potters: Home

fire banner 

The vision of “Minnesota Potters: Sharing the Fire” is to document how ceramic art is passed on from artist to artist to keep this vibrant tradition and community flourishing. The project will document the work of representative Minnesota ceramic artists, their methods of working with clay, and the way they pass on their skills. The project’s goal is to develop an understanding of the Minnesota ceramics community to share with the public, cultivating broader participation in and enjoyment of the ceramic arts.

“Minnesota Potters: Sharing the Fire” has engaged the support of a crucial set of artists and collaborators to ensure the success of the project and was spearheaded by Anoka-Ramsey Community College professor, Mark Lambert.

Sharing the Fire documentary is continuing to air on tpt.
