About the SFCC
The San Francisco Ceramic Circle (SFCC) is the oldest ceramics group in the U.S. The SFCC is affiliated with the San Francisco Museums of Fine Art. The SFCC has graciously permitted the Quimper Club to post this link on our website. The SFCC has reciprocated by adding a link to the Quimper Club on their website.
Below are the QCI’s modifications to the list.
