Since its establishment in 1983, the American Art Pottery Association has continued to bring people together to share their knowledge and interest in art pottery. The AAPA and its membership enjoy various activities each year such as: annual convention; show, sale, and auction of Art Pottery; and the quarterly publication of the Journal of American Art Pottery Association.


  • To promote an interest, understanding, appreciation, and recognition of American Art Pottery.
  • To unify and strengthen the voice of collectors and dealers of American Art Pottery.
  • To foster a members’ Code of Ethics for buying, selling, exhibiting and publishing about American Art Pottery.
