About the Archie Bray Foundation

The Archie Bray Foundation is an international ceramic art center located outside Helena, Montana. Founded in 1951, the Bray was the first artist residency program in the U.S. devoted solely to ceramics. Beginning with founding directors Peter Voulkos and Rudy Autio, the Bray has served as the premier workplace for leading and emerging ceramic artists for nearly 60 years. Among the Bray’s numerous awards for achievement is the American Craft Council Award of Distinction. At the Bray artists come together from all over the world with a variety of experiences, aesthetic approaches, and cultural backgrounds. Twenty ceramists work at the Bray each year in residencies that extend from three months to two years. They receive free studio space, stipends, access to extensive firing facilities, and a stimulating environment that encourages creative and artistic exchange, expression and experimentation. The Bray also is committed to public education offering community classes and workshops; free public exhibitions, and a visiting artist program. Learn more about the residency program on their site.
