About Artaxis

Artaxis a federally recognized 501(c)3 non-profit art organization entirely funded by donations, member application fees, and the Artaxis Shop. Our mission is to engage the ceramics community through promotional, educational, and networking programs while celebrating diverse artistic practices and being a resource of aesthetic values. We provide one of the largest peer-reviewed sources of contemporary ceramics online. Utilized as a resource by instructors, students, gallerists, curators, the general public, and contemporary artists, strives to promote and enrich the field, while functioning as a direct and unobtrusive conduit between viewer and artist.

Some words from our supporters:

"Artaxis is the generous effort of a few highlighting the brilliant talent of many. I feel fortunate to be included in such good company and am thrilled to be able to give back to this valuable resource." - James Aarons

"Artaxis is a vital and vibrant resource. As an artist, it helps me reach out to an interested audience. As an educator, I can direct my students to the site to learn about high quality artists and their work." - Anna Callouri Holcombe

"As artists, we get asked to donate time, artwork, and money to many worthy causes every year. Although I cannot afford to help with all of them, I do try to help fund Artaxis. The dedicated folks at Artaxis spend countless hours and money providing over 700 hundred artists with a professional portfolio page and exposure to students, educators, gallery owners and collectors around the world. For that I am honored, grateful, and happy to contribute." - Eric Van Eimeren

"Artaxis has become an important hub on one of the many wheels of contemporary clay, and I am not only honored to be a part of it, but indebted to it’s creators for their tireless efforts. I am compelled to support this resource as it supports me." - Stephanie Lanter

Some of our programs:

Artaxis Fellowship
The Artaxis Fellowship program is intended to increase diversity, equity, and access in the ceramic arts, with the explicit goal of adding unique perspectives across the field. This year, we offered two fellowships, each one worth up to $2,000, to fund a two-week summer workshop in ceramics at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. The fellowships will cover room, board, tuition, and up to $500 for travel to and from Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine, USA. More about the Artaxis Fellowship can be found at

Artaxis + Color Network Curatorial Fellowship
This fellowship is a collaboration between Artaxis and the Color Network. The Curatorial Fellowship offers an emerging BIPOC curator the opportunity to realize a virtual exhibition of works by artists listed on Artaxis and/or The Color Network’s websites. Learn more at

Artaxis Conversations
Artaxis Conversations is an annual event where we create and promote live and pre-recorded videos of artists talking about their work and communicating with each other about important issues in the field. Artaxis Conversations takes place during National Clay Week in October of each year. More about this program can be found at
