Being an ICAN member means being part of a community of like-minded artists—artists who love to make, discover, watch, listen, read about, and share all things ceramics. Visiting the ICAN website not only means discovering new tips and techniques to help you be a better ceramic artist, but it also provides members with a place to be involved, a place to share ideas, a place to meet fellow artists with similar interests, and a place to show off your hard work in the studio. Whether you are a beginner, have a few classes under your belt, or are a seasoned veteran, you have landed in the right place. 
If you are a member already, scroll down and get involved: Submit images of your artwork, to the latest ICAN contest, watch the Cultural Tours video to learn about all the places ICAN goes, or read about your fellow ICAN members in the Artist Portfolios section. Then, add your own portfolio! If you are not a member, joining ICAN gives you the resources and community support you need to be a better ceramic artist.

  • Splendors of Morocco!

    Travel Morocco and discover the world of pottery, ceramics, and zellige (traditional mosaic). This tour will traverse Morocco from the capital city of Rabat to the ancient Medina of Fes in the North, then to the imperial city of Marrakech before crossing the High Atlas Mountains to the Sahara in the South. Visiting museums, busy souks (markets), and traditional artisans working in clay, we will experience the wonderful world of Morocco. During this cultural tour with a focus on exploring Moroccan ceramics, you will gather ideas and inspiration for your work, visiting renowned regions known for their unique traditional styles such as Fes, Safi, Skoura Oasis, and Tamegroute.

  • A 20% discount (all day, every day) on all books, videos, and other exclusive merchandise in our Ceramic Arts Network Shop.
  • Exclusive discounts on shipping services. When you need to ship your work to customers, you can save you up to 34% in shipping costs through UPS. 

With the ICAN Gold membership, you get all of this for just $12.97 a month!

You get all the discounts, unlimited streaming-video workshops, glaze recipes, all the exclusive benefits to improve your art, build your skills, and grow your business.
