Stretch: ClayHouston

March 27, 2010 — May 23, 2010

Stretch is a juried exhibition of work by the local artist group, ClayHouston. The ceramic artists were challenged by our 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 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.
