SPG / Art by Fire, formerly Sacramento Potters Group, is the oldest, continuously operating association of clay, metal, and glass artists in and around the Sacramento area. Our award-winning artists, all who use fire or extreme heat in the production of their original artwork, gather every other month to discuss art, view demonstrations, and enjoy the special camaraderie that exists between fellow artists.
