It’s the Little Things at the Clay Studio of Missoula aims to highlight small scale ceramic work - be it functional or sculptural - that emphasizes the significance of the subtle, the detailed, and the thoughtfully conceived. While scale plays a pivotal role, we seek works that capture attention through their meticulous craftsmanship, innovative concepts, or compelling techniques. This exhibition aspires to showcase how even the smallest works can evoke powerful emotions, tell compelling stories, and create a lasting impact.
