The Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery is committed to the collection, conservation, lending, and public exhibition of clay, glass, and enamel works of art and craft. We promote knowledge and appreciation of these works, as well as their makers, to stimulate public interest in the mediums of clay, glass, and enamel. 



The Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery is an award-winning national institution based in Waterloo Region celebrating the art and craft of clay, glass, and enamel. In an inclusive community space and cultural hub, we engage artists and the public through exhibitions and collaborate in accessible education programming. We amplify diverse and often untold stories to open dialogue and inspire social change.



The Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery will continue to evolve in its creation of impactful experiences using the transformative power of art through collaboration, connection, and recognition locally, nationally, and internationally to enrich the vibrancy of art and its role in our communities. 


Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge that the Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery is located on the traditional territory of the Attawandaron, Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee peoples. The Gallery is situated on the Haldimand Tract, land promised to Six Nations in 1784 that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River; yet, today, the Six Nations reside on less than five per cent of this unceded territory. Indigenous peoples have inhabited this land for thousands of years, and we respectfully share this territory in peace and friendship. We are grateful and we re-affirm our commitment to do the work, to unlearn and relearn, towards a true reconciliation. 

Reconnaissance du territoire

Nous tenons à souligner que le Musée canadien de l’argile et du verre se trouve sur le territoire traditionnel des peuples Attawandaron, Anishinabé et Haudenosaunee. Le Musée est situé sur la concession de Haldimand, parcelle de terrain promise aux Six Nations, d’une largeur de dix kilomètres sur chaque rive de la rivière Grand; pourtant, aujourd’hui ils occupent moins de 5 pour cent de ce territoire non-cédé. Les peuples autochtones ont habité ces territoires depuis des millénaires. Nous partageons respectueusement et avec gratitude ce territoire avec paix et amitié. Nous réaffirmons notre engagement à faire le travail, à désapprendre et à réapprendre, vers une vrai réconciliation.
