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
