    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 30 artists participating in ten studios across the city. Our artists make a variety of work, from traditional pottery to large-scale sculpture, installations, and performance art.
