    Part of our ClayHouston’s mission is: to cultivate interest in ceramic arts in the Houston metropolitan area and beyond. As part of our strategies to accomplish this as well as advertise our upcoming events we have arranged for a non profit table at First Saturday Arts Market in the Heights. We are looking for membership volunteers to represent ClayHouston.  As a volunteer you will be able to feature some pieces of your work (no sales allowed) as well as sharing information about the Bayou City Clay Crawl and other events.

    3rd Annual Bayou City Clay Crawl

    Various Local Studios

    The Bayou City Clay Crawl showcases work from ClayHouston member artists and expands public awareness of ClayHouston’s membership and programing. Local ceramic artists open their studio doors for the day: Visitors can talk to the artists about their work, purchase art, and generally see how and where these artists work. This year, we have approximately 35 artists participating in twelve studios across the city. Our artists make a variety of work, from traditional pottery to large-scale sculpture, installations, and performance art.
