FUSION: The Ontario Clay and Glass Association

ABOUT FUSION: History/Mandate/Partnerships

History

FUSION grew out of the Ontario Potters' Association, which was incorporated in 1975, and evolved into the Ontario Clay and Glass Association (1985).

Historically, FUSION has focused on the promotion of hand-crafted clay and glass.

As a not-for-profit, charitable organization (with registration # BN 122093826RR0001), it is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors.

Mission Statement

The mission of the association shall be to encourage and promote excellence and quality in clay and glass, provide opportunities for fellowship and a sense of community involvement, provide continuing education resources for members and people interested in clay and glass and to reach out, demonstrating tolerance, caring, and acceptance for the diverse aspects of expression in clay and glass." (Established by the constitution of 1985)

We are:

  • the only Ontario arts organization dedicated solely to makers and collectors of handmade clay and glass

  • a not-for-profit organization led by a volunteer board of directors

  • a diverse membership of artists, students, teachers, guilds, collectors, libraries, hobbyists, businesses... from not only Ontario but around the world!

  • the 'voice' of the clay and glass community to government, business and the general public
