Calling New Members!

If you love to touch clay and mould it into creations, we'd love for you to join our guild. Our members cross the full range of ceramic artists and potters. From the high end professional sculptor and potter to part time artisans to folks who love clay and are just starting out. We have monthly meetings with special workshops, slide shows, presentations and sometimes road trips!  See our guild membership page for more information.

The Salt Spring Island Potters Guild

We are located on Salt Spring Island, off the west coast of British Columbia, Canada, an easy ferry ride from Vancouver or Victoria. Renowned as one of North America's top artistic communities, Salt Spring Island is home to more than 50 studio potters, ranging from internationally renowned ceramic artists to enthusiastic novices.

Our guild membership creates functional, decorative and sculptural pieces, in all firing ranges including specialized firing techniques such as raku, smoke fire and saggar and unique decorative techniques like slip trailing, carving, image transfer and sgraffito. Please visit our member gallery to enjoy the work of our local potters. Our mission is to share the expertise and resources of our guild members, to hold shows and provide learning opportunities. Please visit our guild events page of members events to find out what we're up to.
