Mystic Lyon presents a new window installation and fundraiser by Houston artist Damon Thomas. Featuring 31 pit-fired and glazed ceramics bats, “August Bats” by Damon Thomas will be on view through the closing ceremony and reception on November 26. The title is derived from Thomas’ making of one bat each day through the month of August, as a meditative practice of slowing down during the summer heat. Each bat is handmade and unique, with the atmospheric effects of the firing adding more individuality to each piece.They are approximately 14” in length.

The bats are offered for sale for $120 each, with 50% of the proceeds going to Mystic Lyon.
While Thomas’s installation is on view around the clock through our window on Lyons Avenue, please join us for the special event below
