June’s featured potter at the Ceramic Arts Center Is Clara Hayward
June’s showcase guild member is Clara Hayward, who enjoys the functionality of wheel thrown pottery while adding a whimsy of organic, nonobjective glaze decoration.
Hayward discovered pottery in her senior year of college and she continued taking ceramics classes after graduation, practicing to grow her expertise. Immersed in the total art experience, Hayward also screen prints, paints, draws and makes mobiles from mixed media.
This combined media will be showcased during her Friday evening reception. For more information, visit our website at www.ceramics-nccs.org or contact Mary Ashe-Mahr at email@example.com

“We’ve been very grateful for the communities past support. What better way to support a local non-profit than to listen to great music, have fun with your friends while eating delicious food, drinking your favorite beverage in a hand crafted stein?”
The Nicodemus Center for Ceramic Studies (NCCS), a non profit 501(c)(3) company, was created in 1994 to preserve and interpret the historic pottery tradition of the Cumberland/Shenandoah Valley region. As a means of bringing arts to south central Pennsylvania, the NCCS, in partnership with Penn State Mont Alto, created a cultural arts center to promote the continuation of the study of American folk art, with emphasis on this region’s rich historic pottery tradition.
Presently, the NCCS operates two pottery studios, The Ceramic Arts Center of Waynesboro and the Mont Alto studio located on the Penn State/Mont Alto campus. Both locations offer guild memberships and a variety of pottery classes opened to the public.
