Maximum Concurrent Users: Unlimited Cfile Foundation was founded in 2013 to provide an expanded ceramic field— art, design, architecture and technology—with two things: a knowledge center where the new paradigms shaping our future (and that of other arts) can be addressed, published and broadcast; and a virtual place where a new global, inter-disciplinary community can grow, combine its resources and serve the field during a time of unparalleled flux. In essence we set out to make a ceramic GPS device that would guide the field to its future.
