Stretch: ClayHouston Houston Artists Push the Boundaries of Ceramic Art

Posted March 1, 2010 in Press Releases

Stop by the Artist Hall at HCCC to see Stretch, a juried exhibition of work by the local artist group, ClayHouston. The ceramic artists were challenged by HCCC’s Curator of Fine Craft, Gwynne Rukenbrod, to “stretch” the medium and definition of clay. The resulting exhibition features beautiful pieces by 24 artists and showcases a range of ceramic processes. Stretch includes both functional pieces, such as vases, bowls, and teapots, and sculptural works. Although some of the works on view are traditional in appearance, many of them utilize complex glazing techniques, highlight new approaches to mark-making, and experiment with the endless possibilities of clay.
