ClayHouston General Meeting

The March 21st ClayHouston meeting will be a tour of Dining and Discourse: A Discussion in Three Courses curated by HCCC Curatorial Fellow, Kathryn Hall. The tour starts promptly at 11am in the large gallery at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, 4848 Main Street, Houston, TX 77002.


Ever received less than stellar glaze results? If you’ve ever been at a loss over mysterious glaze flaws, please join us for ClayTalks on Monday, April 13th at 6-8 pm. Kim Tompkins, formerly of the Ceramic Store of Houston, will go over common glaze problems, along with how to successfully troubleshoot and prevent them from occurring again. If you have any pieces that have puzzled you, please bring them for us to examine and find the solution.

In additional to discussion of glazes, we will have our usual roundtable critique.  We will be meeting at Beck's Prime in the Heights, in the meeting room.  See the calendar for more details.
