The Ceramic and Glass Arts share both a visual presence and tactile experience. They can present us with a wide spectrum of appearance including patterns, colors, shape and style and also present widely different surface finishes from coarse to water smooth - from the feel of the many types of finished surfaces and glazes of fired pottery, tiles, and figurines to all types of glass creations and their signature colorings, dimension and touch.

Taos and Northern New Mexico hosts a vibrant community of individuals working with both clay and glass in many different directions and combinations. This section of the Taos Arts Council lists the potters, glassworkers and other creatives working with these mediums.
