The Terra Linda Ceramic Artists is a vibrant and diverse community of ceramic artists, working in harmony, exploring together new directions and techniques while developing personal style.
Many members of the Terra Linda Ceramic Artists win awards, have group and solo shows and have work displayed locally & nationally in galleries. The TLCA supports local art organizations and many of its members participate in the yearly Marin Open studios, Marinwwod Art & Wine Shows, the Marin County Fair and since 2019 the CCACA in Davis.
The Terra Linda Ceramics was founded by Susan Hontalas in 1993, after many years of teaching and art community building Susan decided to retire in 2017 entrusting the program to Nadia Tarzi-Saccardi. With a new name, the Terra Linda Ceramic Artists program now offers three additional adult classes, a teen class, specialty firings such as luster, decal and pit firing, as well as a variety of workshops and state wide exhibiting opportunities to students enrolled in the program.
