About POW!

POW! (Pots On Wheels!) is a collaborative group of functional potters who seek to connect our love of pots with all kinds of people by bringing shows, projects, and collaborations directly to communities in our mobile gallery/project space. We love the culture of the ceramic community, its makers and collectors, but want to want to reach new audiences—young and older audiences and folks who might never before have touched clay, used handmade pots, or have any idea about how pots are made.  Our renovated a 17ft step van reaches underserved neighborhoods and settings where space is at a premium and otherwise unavailable. The van also serves as an educational gallery to exhibit collaborative projects that POW! members engage in with one another, colleagues, students, and communities.


We are grateful to our sponsors for their generous support of our project:
