About us

18 Hands logo

The founders of 18 Hands Gallery are all ceramic artists who met in many contexts, but came together as a through our work in educational and non-profit arts organizations such as ClayHouston. We began to realize that though our area is full of people who love clay art, and dozens of artists who love creating it — there are surprisingly few venues in Houston for experiencing ceramic fine art.


18 Hands Gallery was created with the goal of bringing together the unique work of many fine clay artists in an accessible and inviting way. In additiona to featuring the work of many fine Houston-area and Texas artists, our gallery now represents dozens of nationally and internationally known ceramists - decorative, sculptural, figurative, fanciful, and functional. We offer monthly exhibitions (First Saturday Openings), feature shows by well-known or emerging guest artists, as well as ceramic artists' lectures and workshops.
