In Dark Light: The Micaceous Ceramics of Christine Nofchissey McHorse, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft presents works by one of the most innovative contemporary forces in Native American pottery. Working from traditional materials and techniques, Christine Nofchissey McHorse's vessel-based art blends the boundaries of pottery and sculpture, erasing the line between function and form.

As the Navajo artist's first traveling exhibition, the show exhibits the unadorned sophistication of the sultry curves, black satiny surfaces and modern forms of her Dark Light series, created from 1997 to present. An amalgam of Puebloan, Navajo, and contemporary influences, each sculpture possesses a cultural splendor that is as fertile as the Northern New Mexico riverbeds where McHorse harvests her clay.

On view through May 11, 2014.
