The Ceramic League of Miami (CLM) is a nonprofit ceramic arts education organization dedicated to promoting education and appreciation of the ceramic arts and fostering the artist that exists in everyone. We offer wheel, hand building, mosaic, and raku classes, and visiting artist workshops to our members and to the general public.
CLM is a member run organization. Our members volunteer their time with the administrative operations of the organization, maintaining CLM’s fully equipped facility, and representing CLM in the community to bring the fun of clay to schools, scout troops, senior centers, special needs organizations and community events.
CLM members enjoy the use of our fully equipped facility with electric, gas, soda, and raku kilns, as well as pottery wheels, a slab roller, pugmill, studio spaces, and more. CLM is a welcoming community of ceramic artists who share their work and passion for clay.
CLM was founded in 1950 by a group of women artists who came together to nurture their interest and skills in the ceramic arts. Under their stewardship, CLM grew from their garages to the Lowe Gallery at the University of Miami where they began to sponsor national juried ceramics exhibitions. Today, CLM owns its own fully equipped facility on SW 129th Street and continues the tradition of its founding members with ceramic classes, an annual ceramics members exhibition juried by nationally recognized artists, and community service projects.
