Summer is upon us and there is a lot going on at ClayHouston. First, though, I want to wish Ali Saunders, our treasurer, a very successful residency at the Flower City Arts Center in Rochester, NY. She will be gone for a year. Good luck Ali! Have a wonderful time and be sure to keep in touch.
With Aki leaving, we need a new treasurer, If any of you have accounting skills and would like to be a part of our ClayHouston board, please contact me, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Message from Bayou Bend - Museum of Fine Arts
My name is Joey Milillo, and I am the Programs Manager at Bayou Bend, a branch of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston located near Memorial Park. Our collection contains many ceramics of various types, and in August we will be producing a family program focused on learning more about ceramics and pottery.
I would love to find a local potter with a transportable wheel who might be interested in holding a demo for this program. It would be a pretty straightforward deal – come out, bring the wheel, and sit at it making pottery while talking about your process with passersby.
The event takes place on three Fridays in August – the 3rd, 10th, and 17th. Hours are 1 – 3 p.m., but the potter should account for time to set up and break down, so they’ll likely be here a little longer than that each day.
We provide an honorarium for this program ($200 per date, total $600 for all three days).
For more information or to inquire about this opportunity, please contact:
Programs Manager, Bayou Bend
