The Potters Guild of British Columbia (PGBC) is a non-profit society that serves the needs of the BC Ceramic arts community. Established in 1955, the PGBC is British Columbia's largest and oldest organization for ceramic artists . From 1986-2018 the PGBC operated the Gallery of BC Ceramics on Granville Island.

Since closing our brick and mortar gallery, the PGBC is pivoting to other projects to support our member artists.

In May 2021 the PGBC opened Vancouver's only publicly accessible fee-for-service gas kiln. The kiln is located at the Mergatroid building, 975 Vernon Drive. This project was made possible with grant funding from the City of Vancouver, the Province of British Columbia, and our wonderful landlord Morley Faber.
