Vision statement
: To help ACerS members better appreciate the artistic side of ceramics and to work cooperatively with others in the field (e.g., craftspeople, historians, archaeologists, curators, conservators, conservation scientists, etc.), to attract and train the future workforce in this area, to stimulate interest and foster interactions in this area, to reconstruct older ceramic technologies, and to improve the press and general public’s understanding and appreciation of ACerS and professional societies in general, as well as ceramists and ceramics (both artistic and industrial).
