Out of the Blue 2013

International Cup 2012 logo

The Clay Studio of Missoula presents:

Out of the Blue
February 1-22, 2013

juried by Trey Hill


Blue describes a color, a state of mind, and a musical style. Blue is the colour of light between violet and green on the visible spectrum, is commonly used to describe melancholy, is traditionally associated with the sea and the sky, is the most common color of business suits, and is the shade of our favorite jeans. In ceramics, cobalt is one of our most potent colorants, used in glazes to make colors ranging from blues to purples to greys and blacks.

Out of the Blue, sponsored by the Clay Studio of Missoula, is a juried exhibition showcasing ceramic work that addresses “blue”. Show us your ceramic blues!


$100 will be awarded by the juror to one entry for "best in show". Good luck!


Applications are due November 16, 2012
