Archie Bray Foundation

“I want to know that there is a place like the Bray - where diversity of thinking and art can flourish.” Martha Williams, Bray Board of Directors

The Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts (Bray) is a public, nonprofit, educational organization founded by brickmaker Archie Bray, with help from Branson Stevenson and Peter Meloy in 1951. Their intention was to create "a place to make available for all who are seriously interested in any of the branches of the ceramic arts, a fine place to work." The Bray is actively committed to promoting, celebrating, and sustaining the ceramic arts on a local, national, and international scale. We strive to inspire creativity and connect people of all backgrounds and abilities through transformative encounters in ceramics.
