Get to Know the Artisans
The Brookwood Community, located in Brookshire, TX, provides an educational environment that creates jobs, builds a sense of belonging, and demands dignity and respect for adults with disabilities. Ceramicists, staff, and citizens of Brookwood work in the ceramics shop to create beautiful hand-painted pieces of pottery. Each product is cut out of clay, dried and wet sanded, painted, glazed, and fired in one of twelve kilns. Sales of these pottery pieces go towards supporting the Brookwood Community.
