ClayHouston would like to introduce the recent work that we have been doing in our newly formed Equity, Inclusion, and Access (EIA) Committee. The Committee was formed in July 2020 as a response to recent police violence against Black people. We are committed to our ongoing efforts in order to cultivate greater diversity and access in the field of ceramics.


Working to bridge the gap between clay and under-represented communities in Houston while naming and co-creating opportunities within our organization and alongside city partners to provide inclusive programing and engagement, regardless of religion, race, gender, sexual orientation or ability.

Help us to raise funds for our ongoing initiatives by purchasing a t-shirt through our Custom Ink fundraiser. Your donation will help our ongoing efforts to cultivate greater diversity and access in the field of ceramics. All of the funds raised will go back to support our annual initiatives which include funding art supplies to schools in partnership with the Ceramic Store Houston and our Award for Texas BIPOC Ceramic Artists. Contact Abbie Preston Edmonson for purchase. Thank you for your support!

Resources / Recursos

We at ClayHouston believe that language should not be a barrier to learning ceramics. By partnering with The Clay Studio in Philadelphia, we now have access to resources that are available in both English and Spanish. The website link below has a ceramics vocabulary sheet, as well as instructions on beginner ceramic techniques like making a pinch pot. When more resources are found, they will be added to this page. ClayHouston will continue to find ways to break the language barrier and make clay accessible to everyone. 

Nosotros en ClayHouston creemos que el lenguaje no debería ser una barrera para aprender cerámica. En asociándonos con The Clay Studio en la Filadelfia, ahora tenemos acceso a los recursos que están disponibles en Inglés y Español. En ese enlace abajo, contiene una página de vocabulario de cerámica, y también instrucciones de técnicas para principiantes de cerámica para hacer ollas de pellizco. Cuando se encuentren más recursos, serán agregados a esta página. ClayHouston continuará encontrando maneras de romper la barrera del lenguaje y hacer el barro más accesible para todos.  Los Recursos


Annual Award for Texas BIPOC Ceramic Artists

This award is dedicated to providing funding for ceramic artists in Texas who self-identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color. ClayHouston has created this award as part of our ongoing efforts to cultivate greater diversity and access in the field of ceramics. In addition to those efforts, we acknowledge the heavy toll of the combined forces of COVID-19, systemic racism, and the economic uncertainty currently facing many BIPOC communities. ClayHouston awards two individual winners with $1,200 each. One winner will be chosen from each of the two categories: Emerging and Mid-Career & Beyond.  Learn more
