Welcome to ClayHouston

ClayHouston supports Houston artists working in ceramics.  We provide educational opportunities, creative activities, and social groups.  We would be delighted for you to be a part.  See the "Membership" page for more information.

We have secured our venue for the 2nd Annual Members Pop-Up Marketplace. It will be at All Saints Catholic Church on April 20 from 10am-4 pm. There will be 10'x10' spots as well as 6' table spaces available. We had a wonderful turn out last year and great press coverage in The Leader. We hope you will consider taking part in this year's Pop-Up and help us make it another successful event.  Students are encouraged to apply for the Pop-Up and can email estes.ceramics@gmail.com for student scholarships to cover the cost of a 6' booth space.  Register Here


Community Day

ClayHouston will be participating in the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft Community Day on March 2, 2019 from 11am-3pm. We will have a table set up for demonstrations and to share about our organization and are needing 4 volunteers to help with either a morning shift or an afternoon shift. Volunteer here 

ClayHouston will begin hosting Clay Creative, a social event in order to connect with our clay community as well as a time to learn from our fellow members. Each event will be hosted at a different ClayHouston member's studio and will take place on the third Saturday of every other month.

Our first Saturday event will be February 16 from 10 AM-12 PM hosted by Michelle Matthews at her studio. Please join us Studio 4231, 4231 P Bellaire Blvd., Houston, TX 77025. She will discuss her 2018 residencies at La Meridiana School of Ceramics in Certaldo, Italy and Atelierhaus Hilmsen Residency in Hilmsen, Germany. Sign up Here

It's that time of year again when the Empty Bowls Committee starts gearing up for another great event, and it all starts with you.  We are asking for bowl donations of course! Last year we had over 1400 bowls donated in a variety of mediums -clay, wood, paper, metal and fiber and over 700 people attended the event.  While most bowls are soup-sized and are offered for a $25 donation, larger bowls are very popular and priced accordingly.
