In 2007 Coastal Carolina Clay Guild was established under the 501C3 nonprofit umbrella of Orange Street Pottery. Today the guild has over 100 members from the coastal areas of North and South Carolina. The guild meets bimonthly in the Community Arts Center in downtown Wilmington and invites a variety of guest speakers to its meetings.
The guild offers its members and the community workshops each year with nationally known sculptors and potters. It has an annual Holiday Show and Sale in November with over 30 members participating and some of the proceeds benefiting community projects. Members also make the bowls for the biyearly Empty Bowls Project.
Coastal Carolina Clay Guild has participated in National Craft Week and has exhibited at the North Carolina Pottery Center, Greenhill Gallery, Southeastern College, Wilma Daniels Gallery at Cape Fear Community College and Gray Gallery at East Carolina University.
