Yvonne Gerych

Artist Bio:

Yvonne Gerych lives in Houston and is a practicing ceramics and figurative sculptor.

Intrigued by the mortality of the flesh and the immortality of the spirit, she attempts to explore the mysteries of the temporal human existence and the everlasting nature. The dramatic and ornate Baroque style of Prague churches and visual stimuli gathered during years spent in different countries are reflected in her work. She views her ceramic sculptures as a gateway to the artist's emotions and the unfathomable ways of the creative process.

Allyn Martinez

Artist Bio:

I draw inspiration from the evolution of social perceptions and perceived expectations surrounding social norms, feminism, and personal anecdotes. The impact of those inspirations navigated me through life, as I translate my journey into my sculptures, leveraging various mediums and techniques to communicate the trials of my experiences. I hope my work will stimulate a level of discomfort whether it is through vulnerability, disagreement, representation, or subject matter.

I have a BFA in Sculpture from the University of Houston. I currently teach at 3rd Coast Clay and work out of my home studio in Tomball, Tx.

Tiffany Angel Nesbitt

Artist statement:

Tiffany Angel Nesbit is native to New Orleans, Louisiana. She received her BA in visual arts from the University of Southeastern Louisiana in 2018 and has recently earned an MFA in visual arts at the University of Houston in 2022. Her practice is heavily influenced by childhood memories learning how to shepherd her family’s small farm; protecting the domestic animals on the property from monsters that come out from the woods and water systems at night. The characters in the work use humor and play to memorialize the animal’s spirits that once lived there.

She teaches sculpture as an Adjunct Professor at San Jack North Campus in Houston Texas, along with teaching wheel throwing at Third Coast Clay, in Houston. She sells her work at the First Saturday Art Market on 19th Street, and Second Saturday Folk Art Market at Sawyer Yards.

Naoko Teruya

Artist Bio:

I was born in Sapporo and grew up in Tokyo, Japan. I had never touched clay in Japan. My ceramic journey began in Boston in 1992. When I first came to the US in 1989 I didn’t bring any bowls and plates and I couldn’t find them for Japanese food at that time. I decided to make them by myself and found the Radcliffe College Ceramic Studio. I focused on making functional work by both the wheel and hand-built. Since then I moved around almost every 2 to 3 years, back and forth to Japan, Philadelphia, and Chicago, I took several local ceramic classes and community college class of ceramics. I moved to Houston and started to take a class of Glassell School in 2002. I received Merit Award from Glassell School in 2018.
