The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston Uses Plus Air Dry Clay

Plus air dry clay used for workshop The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston used Plus Air Dry Clay to replicate 19th century pottery in a series of workshops in August 2015. The class rooms were large and seated as many as 55 participants. Each workshop was 30 minutes long, and with 4 workshops each day, gave a grand total of 600 participants over 3 event days.

 Joey Milillo, programs manager, stated;

"We were using the ACTÍVA PLUS CLAY to make a project based on Bayou Bend’s collection of Texas air drying clay used by museum stoneware.  Our teaching artist taught participants how to replicate the 19th century jugs, pots, pitchers, urns, and churns. Since we do not have a kiln at Bayou Bend, an air-dry clay was essential to our task, and in my experience, ACTÍVA produces the best air-dry clay I’ve been able to find." 

  "I first encountered this clay at our local Texas Art Supply store in Houston, but they didn’t have quite enough in stock for what we planned to do this summer. Imagine my delight when I found out I could order it directly ACTÍVA Products!
