Similar to the purpose of guilds in medieval times, Mica was formed to share resources and ideas, strengthen our influence, improve purchasing power for supplies, provide charitable works, and to educate the public as to the importance of ceramic art. Most importantly, MICA fosters mutual support, networking advantages, and continued learning in our field.
From majestic mountain tops to fertile river valleys, our small rural communities, back road residences, and wilderness provide us with the serenity to create. Mendocino County is the chosen home for a diverse group of artists who continue to be in awe of the majestic redwood forests, the stately oaks, and the gifts of nature that inspire them. Geographically separated by many miles of rural roads, MICA brings us together to forge valuable relationships and to celebrate ceramic art.
