Australian Ceramics Directory

Since 2002 the Australian Ceramics Directory (ACD) has been an important initiative of TACA providing an international and national reference of Australian ceramic artists for interior designers, galleries, collectors, art administrators, curators, students and international visitors. The ACD allows ceramicists and craftspeople to have a professional presence and wider exposure online, including links to their website and social media. Our category listings allow artists, galleries and organisations to nominate where they would like to appear. For users of the ACD searching allows for the use of key descriptive terms, and/or artists, enabling users to quickly hone in on areas of interest.

The Australian Ceramics Association

The Australian Ceramics Association (TACA) fosters a lively, engaged ceramics community throughout Australia. We publish The Journal of Australian Ceramics, organise nationwide open studio events, support ceramic artists in their studio practice and advocate for excellence in ceramics education and training. We work to spread the excitement and passion of ceramics throughout Australia so that everyone has the opportunity to recognise, experience and value ceramics in their daily lives. In 1956, the Potters Society of Australia was formed to encourage and foster the development, appreciation and recognition of potters and pottery. It was the first ceramics organisation in Australia. In 2006, our name was changed to The Australian Ceramics Association to more fully reflect the scope of practice of the members. We are a national, not-for-profit organisation.
