Houston Center for Contemporary Craft


Friday, May. 29, 2015 – Saturday, Aug. 29, 2015

Over two semesters, students in the MFAH Glassell School of Art’s “Special Topics: Ceramics in the Environment” course investigated the concepts of installation, time-based works, and site specificity, while working in clay media.

The students worked within the parameters of HCCC’s Craft Garden for the creation of their own site-specific installations, taking into consideration the changing landscape of the garden over the course of the summer and the relationship of clay to the natural environment. The project culminated in this outdoor exhibition at HCCC.

Featured artists include Mary Aldrich, Loes Berendschot, Nell Gottlieb, Renee LeBlanc, Michelle Matthews, Kimberly Millspaugh, Polly Ruhlman, Anne Steacy, and Wouter Van Der Tol.
