About Ceramic Arts Queensland (CAQ)

Ceramic Arts Qld (formerly Queensland Potters Association / Fusions) is a not-for-profit volunteer run organisation that was formed in Brisbane in 1968.

We foster an inclusive and unified ceramic art community in QLD and Northern NSW.

Ceramic Arts Queensland is a platform where members can share information, advertise events and access opportunity.

Our regular program includes:

  • An Annual Members Exhibition
  • The $2000 Siliceous Award for Ceramic Excellence
  • The Toolkit Workshop series
  • The Ceramics Arts Queensland Quarterly Bulletin publication which showcases ceramic specific articles, events and opportunities, and
  • The fortnightly Flash Bulletin through which we share current events and opportunities.

Ceramic Arts Queensland has an extensive ‘Permanent Collection’ of ceramic works created by artists from Australia and abroad.  This impressive collection has been acquired over the many years of our operation.

CAQ is run by a Board of Directors elected by our membership at our Annual General Meeting in March.

The Board meet monthly to ensure the organisation continues to meet the aims and philosophy of the founding members of the organisation.

CAQ is a public company limited by guarantee.

Selections from our Member's Gallery

Queensland has a long history of producing world-class potters and ceramic artists. That tradition lives on today with many of Australia's most innovative clay-workers living and working in the Sunshine state.

There are strong centers of excellence in the border districts, the Gold Coast, the Sunshine Coast, the central Brisbane areas and in the regional areas of the vast state of Queensland.

Many of the members of Ceramic Arts Queensland mount critically aclaimed exhibitions throughout Australia and internationally every year. We have gathered together the portfolios of many of these fine artists for you to browse their work.

Most of these artists have their own websites or galleries where their work can be purchased either online or in person at their studios or galleries.
