NCECA welcomes all artists, educators, collectors, art professionals and everyone interested in the creative practice and appreciation of the ceramic arts. As the world’s largest organization dedicated to the ceramic arts and ceramic arts education, NCECA provides valuable benefits to its members. NCECA is a conduit of creative ideas, educational methodologies and artistic inspiration. Members enjoy direct access to the largest network of ceramic arts professionals, art educators and patrons of the art. Everyone connected to this most ancient of art forms—and ever-new frontier of artistic endeavor—will find a home in NCECA.

We have changed the membership structure to separate the membership fee from the conference fee. If you can’t attend the conference, you can still enjoy NCECA membership. We are doing this to encourage all those who share our passion for ceramics to continue regularly as NCECA members and enjoy the benefits, year after year. You can stay in touch; build community, form membership relationships and support ceramic education and art.
