Tennessee Potter's Society

Tennessee Potter’s Society provides meetings to gather potters of all experience and skill levels for celebration, preservation, and education to ensure a strong community and sustainable industry for clay artists.



Our next meeting is
Saturday, March 25th, 2023, 3:00-5:00


The Clay Lady’s Campus
1416 Lebanon Pike, Nashville, Tennessee 37210


Due to the large attendance, we request you RSVP your intention to attend by emailing danielle@theclaylady.com


The focus of our meetings center on how we as potters, which are usually solitary workers, are stronger together than apart.  Community is important to sustain our industry.

We will have speakers, Q&A, table talk with specific topics and of course, networking and conversation!

Due to the large attendance, we request you RSVP your intention to attend by emailing danielle@theclaylady.com


Members will not be asked to pay monetary dues. However, there will be an ask at each meeting for a piece of your work to benefit our creative, non-profit, communities of Tennessee. 

March 25 meeting will require a bowl donation for Cooking on the Square Empty Bowl event to benefit Habitat for Humanity.

Come early to the meeting and participate in our Spring Bowl-A-Thon in our pottery studio from 9:00-3:00! Clay is provided!


Each meeting will have different potters with various experience and backgrounds that share of their experience as Tennessee Potter’s followed by Q&A. 

We are honored to announce that the speakers for our March 25 meeting will be Susan DeMay, Alexia Marcelle Abegg, and Becca Jane Koehler. All production minded potters with highly successful careers as makers.

Speakers for our Saturday, March 25 2023 meeting from 3:00-5:00
Susan DeMay

Susan DeMay produces functional and decorative stoneware pottery and other artistic forms, such as wall works, sculptural vases, and tile projects. Since 1985 she has maintained a studio, Made by deMay, in Smithville, Tennessee with the help a number of assistants. Her work includes a production line of tabletop wares as well as a series of art pieces. All clay work uses colorful glazes with a variety of surfaces, put together to create rich, expressive palettes and distinctive designs. 


Alexia Marcelle Abegg

Alexia Marcelle Abegg is an artist currently working in Nashville, Tennessee. Her hands are always moving. Alexia works with clay, paper, textiles, paint, ink and dye. After establishing a successful career designing, selling, and curating a textile line, Alexia embeds these same elements of simple, yet elegant designs on the surface of her functional pottery.


Becca Jane Koehler

Becca Jane Koehler is a ceramic artist and illustrator in Nashville, TN. Becca earned her BFA in Furniture Design in 2005 from Savannah College of Art and Design. After 10 years of designing and illustrating for major dinnerware retailers worldwide, Becca is now a maker of hand painted ceramics.
