Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC) is pleased to present “Charlotte Potter: Glass Armory.” This solo exhibition investigates the physical manifestation of identity through the intersection of glass and the body’s largest organ and protective barrier, the skin.
While reflecting on the intertwined history of glass, medicine, and anatomy, artist Charlotte Potter states, “the fates of lives are cast with these small transparent pieces of glass.” Using microscope slides, along with lenses and window glass, Potter constructs a series of glass armor pieces that provide a frame into the psyche, allowing the viewer to explore how skin—with all of its blemishes, scars, and imperfections—is fundamental to one’s sense of self.
At Enclave at Woodbridge Apartments in Sugar Land, Texas, it is clear that we have it all, but we still feel obliged to inform you of all the events our community has scheduled. Please feel free to join in all of the fun at this event!
