Born out of the need to place its destiny into the hands of those whose hands and hearts live by the fire of creation, the Taos Ceramics Center (TCC) has taken its first breath in the evolution of the ceramic arts in Taos, New Mexico and well beyond.
The members of TCC are committed to elevating the presence of ceramics in this magical land of Taos where the earth and local heritage are treasured, perhaps more so than anywhere else in this nation. Our vision is one of community involvement and support, an educational resource for all ages, a retail ceramics supply store, and an interdisciplinary gallery second to none.
The TCC will soon be gearing up a non-profit subsidiary, the Creative Taos Educational Foundation (CTEF), that will encourage financial participation to help fulfill our mission as an educational studio. We will host resident artists and offer renowned ceramic artists from near and far a venue to hold workshops and classes for sharing their experience and knowledge to all those who thrive on it. We are also committed to establishing a scholarship program to introduce ceramics within the community and conducting regular outreach to the public and charter schools of Taos and Northern New Mexico.
At present, the TCC exists only virtually. We are, however, hopeful of moving into a permanent facility by December.
