The CCCG, a nonprofit organization, was founded in 2007 by a group of Wilmington potters to promote and exchange information about all types of ceramic arts and to provide mutual support, encouragement, and education for its members and for the community. The guild offer workshops each year with nationally known sculptors and potters for its members and those in the community interested in the clay arts. It also provides community outreach by visiting schools to demonstrate and teach clay techniques to students. In addition, the guild uses its membership dues to offer scholarships and grants to its members. In only five short years, the CCCG has grown to include over 100 ceramic artists from the southeast coastal region.
