Celebrating 50 Years!

TERRA FORM: A Cape Cod Potters Juried Exhibition reveals the diversity of exceptional ceramic objects, both functional and non-functional, created by members of the Cape Cod Potters.


55 objects were selected for the exhibition by James Lawton, former professor of Ceramics and Chair of the Artisanry Department at UMass Dartmouth.

The Cape Cod Museum of Art invited the Cape Cod Potters to exhibit at the Museum in celebration of the group's 50th anniversary, which coincides with CCMoA's 40th. Remarkably, both non-profit organizations owe their existence in part to the same man – sculptor, potter and visionary, Harry Holl (1922-2014).

The Cape Cod Potters (or the Cape Cod Cooperative as it was initially named) was formed to promote the professional growth of potters and cooperation between craftspeople on Cape Cod. 

It is fitting that Cape Cod Museum of Art and the Cape Cod Potters celebrate their anniversaries together with this exhibition.

​Steve Kemp, a ceramic artist for over 40 years, explores his lifelong journey from apprentice to master. His unique voice and unwavering dedication to the craft have been carefully molded over time, influenced by lessons from his late teacher, shaped by the constant struggles encountered in life and love, and inspired by the natural beauty of Cape Cod. More than an obvious metaphor, Clay is an open letter to creatives everywhere in search of their own voice.

Founded in 1972, Cape Cod Potters operates as an educational, charitable organization through the dissemination of knowledge and experience. They seek to maintain high standards and professional growth within  the membership and to generally stimulate the education in appreciation of the making of pottery and allied arts.

Throughout the year, potters individually and collectively hold exhibits, demonstrations and artistic activities for the general public, camps and schools.
