June 27 Meeting

•  6:30 pm, Social Time
•  7:00 pm, Guild business updates followed “Tiles 101 with Michelle Griffoul”. Michelle is a classically trained potter with the eye of a painter and the production skills and sensibilities of a manufacturing engineer. While receiving her B.A. and M.F.A. in ceramics, she spent a year at the International School of Ceramics in Florence, Italy. This led to the creation of her current ceramic tile design and production studio. Through numerous gallery shows and public art commissions, she is recognized as a master of the ceramic arts.

General Meeting Information

Members’ Clay & Supplies Order

The Guild makes quarterly clay and supply orders from Aardvark and Laguna as one of our greatest Plus Tier member benefits! By ordering as a group, we get favorable shipping and excellent quantity discounts on clay. Besides clay, you can order anything from their catalogs, such as glazes, tools, kiln shelves/furniture, and bulk raw materials. The orders arrive within days of each other at a Guild member’s home in Ventura where you will pick up and pay for your order. Keep a shopping list going; we start collecting your orders about a month ahead of the delivery date. Updates on orders are provided via Announcements through MemberConnect. If you have any questions, please send them through our contact form. Please note that you must be a Plus Tier member to participate in the clay ordering.
