For the second year in a row, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft is collaborating with the MFAH Glassell School of Art’s “Ceramics in the Environment” class to present ceramic work by Mary Aldrich, Renée LeBlanc, Anne Steacy, and Vivian Pastor. As part of the course, students learned how to create a site-specific proposal for a public space. The exhibition runs through March 12th and celebrates the culmination of their semester-long projects, created exclusively for HCCC’s Craft Garden, exploring rich historical ties to natural resources and encouraging a dialogue about the craft-based materials that are grown in the garden.

The “Ceramics in the Environment” course was led in partnership with Jeff Forster, Ceramics Area Coordinator at the MFAH Glassell School of Art, and HCCC Curator Kathryn Hall.

Houston Center for Contemporary Craft is located at 4848 Main Street. For more information visit www.crafthouston.org.
