Kaabo Clay Collective is a mutual aid network for Black ceramicists.

The Collective Forum is now open!

Access is free and open to all Black-identifying ceramicists by joining the site.

Kaabo means welcome in Yoruba.

Kaabo Clay Collective connects African diasporic ceramicists worldwide and supports its members with resources, and opportunities generated through the group itself.


Each member is empowered to initiate a project, event, scholarship or any other activity. The only stipulation is that the idea must involve or benefit other Kaabo members. Membership also entails the sharing of resources with other Kaabo members. In short, we are a taking care of each other to build upon our ceramic skills and a joyful community of Black ceramic artists; for us by us.

The collective has generated $6,000 from our pottery sale to fund an award for a Black ceramicist of any skill level or educational background who demonstrates a desire to grow and a commitment to the field. The award may be split or kept whole depending on the needs of the applicants.
