International Cup 2020 at the Clay Studio of Missoula, is an exhibition showcasing ceramic work that explores the infinite possibilities of the idea of a cup. Included works range from well-crafted utilitarian mugs to cups used as an exploration of metaphor and abstract content. Works by 33 artists have been selected from entries from all around the world. Participating artists are from the United States, Canada, Scotland, and The Netherlands.


This year’s exhibit was juried by Sunshine Cobb, a nationally recognized potter living in Helena, Montana. Sunshine focuses her talent on functional ware, embracing the richness of earthenware. She received her BA in Studio Art from California State University at Sacramento and her MFA in Ceramics from Utah State University. She was a long term resident at the Archie Bray Foundation and recently wrote the book, Mastering Hand Building.
