accessCeramics provides high quality images of contemporary ceramics by today’s leading artists. The digital collection started as a project at the Visual Resources Center of Watzek Library and the Art Department of Lewis & Clark College. The images are stored on Flickr, making them very accessible and easy to search.

There are many browse options including by artist, surface treatment,  firing requirements, or object type. Don’t forget to check out their resources page for information on ceramic organizations, museums, and residency programs.
