AccessCeramics, Contemporary Ceramics Archive

Thomas Orr, Pomona. 2008. From

This archive site came across my attention recently and it is a great visual contemporary ceramic resource. A project of Faculty and Staff at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon, AccessCeramics is a database of nearly 3000 images of contemporary ceramics. A quote from the Lewis and Clark website states "In the short time since its inception, accessCeramics has grown tremendously and has caught the attention of artists, scholars, and experts in instructional media services. The originality of the project and its educational mission have earned it grant support from prominent foundations such as the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA)." A wonderful resource for teachers, students and artists, AccessCeramics is a wealth of visual information on contemporary ceramics that is worth spending some time getting to know.
