Michelle  Heinesen

Artist Bio:

Michelle Heinesen (aka HANSDOTTIR) and owner of POTCLUB Studio, is a Singaporean-Faroese transplant based in Houston. She had her art start at the Lasalle-SIA College of the Arts Singapore and a ceramics apprenticeship after shortly after. She teaches and hosts workshops at POTCLUB. - My sculptural language is formed by my surrounding environment and engages with themes of memories, migration, identity, intersectionality and place. The association of clay with the earth, functionality and civilization is turned on itself when we are confronted with this material in other states. When seen in the organic formations of my structures, a whole made from sprigs and modular pieces is recreated, this time estranged from its original context of tradition and cultivation, but nonetheless unified by an overall cohesiveness of movement and composition. Often, I inject humour / optimism in a somber body of work. Ultimately, I strive to strike a balance between contrast, culture and connection.

Lenie Caston-Miller

Artist Bio:

Lenie Caston-Miller has been working in the medium of ceramics for a decade. In that timeframe she has used the medium to convey the interconnections life brings in ones journey through finish surface treatments, form, and the elevation of a craft medium into a fine art form. For Lenie, the transformation of the simple and humble material of mud/clay, a readily found element in our daily life that we literally walk on, into forms that reflect that transformation and hardening of the material process and personal journey of tangential and steadfast relationships one transverses in life.

Lenie has taken her reparative work from her traumas during her service for the country during Operation Iraqi Freedom, journey of finding words and space that contradict her conservative formation as a member of the LGBTQ community, and work within a Title I public school system to tell her abstract narratives through her artwork.

Kathleen Hamlet

Artist Bio:

I’ve been a color clay artist since 1988. I work primarily in porcelain because of its density, whiteness, and translucency.

Colored porcelain allows me to form patterns and imagery within the piece itself and becomes its own decoration. The structure and decoration are critical to the final form.

I design my patterns by drawing and coloring. My block shapes are determined by how I want to use the slices.

I will always be interested in processes and techniques required by craftsman in other fields such as metal, stone, glass, and food. And, I stay inspired. Especially when light hits a piece just right

Maria Hernandez

Artist Bio:

Maria Hernandez is a ceramicist who was raised in Houston, Texas. She is the owner of Sunflower Ceramic Studio and focuses on making functional pieces as well as artwork. She received a BFA with a Ceramics concentration from Angelo State University in 2017. Maria believes that it is important to have an object to turn to for comfort, whether that be a favorite mug or everyday bowl. By having a minimalistic style, the focus of her pieces becomes the color. Color is a major influence in her work because of how much control it has over a person's mood. This year, Maria is experimenting with negative space and subtractive methods of alteration. This would allow a person to reflect on how parts of you can disappear with the passage of time.
