About Colorado Clay

Colorado Clay, Denver International Airport’s newest art exhibit, is an exploration of a small part of the history and popularity of clay in Colorado. Our state has a long and rich history of clay from archaeological discoveries of clay pots found at Mesa Verde, to adobe structures dating back hundreds of years, to contemporary artists and brick makers today.
Clay deposits, ubiquitous across the Front Range, made brick manufacturing a successful enterprise. Clay mining, while not as glamorous as gold and silver found in Colorado, was still significant to nineteenth and twentieth century history of the state. Today, there are still several clay mines in operation producing the raw materials for commercial bricks.
Ceramic arts also thrive in Colorado dating back to ancient Anasazi pottery. In the early twentieth century, Van Briggle Pottery in Colorado Springs, and Coors Porcelain Company in Golden, established themselves as leading ceramics makers both nationally and abroad. Today, many artists use clay from outside of the state, yet the popularity of ceramics continues and is showcased here by highlighting a variety of functional and sculptural ceramic arts.
