"Clay: Body, Mind, and Soul"

A ClayHouston Regional Exhibit

While functional work in clay speaks to the needs of our body and spirit through the recognizable forms one uses in daily life - cups, bowls, teapots, plates, and ritual objects - nonfunctional clay works speak more to the cerebral side of ourselves through expressions of important ideas, feelings or designs. If done well, both can transcend function and nonfunction and speak to the viewer on a higher plane – can in fact, speak to the needs of our soul.
