An amazing selection of tea party themed ceramic works and art packages will be available for bidding and instant purchase. Proceeds from this online event fund professional development opportunities for long term artists-in-residence at The Clay Studio of Missoula.

This late summer celebration NORMALLY offers an appetizing selection of high tea themed snacks, and scones.  The Clay Studio of Missoula’s talented ceramic artists will provide guests with a handmade cup and plate to take home. Teas by Lake Missoula Tea Company, coffee, and wine are usually served, along with live music accompaniment


Considering holding a high volume gathering in late summer is highly unadvisable for the safety and welfare of our valued community, we've decided to utilize our auction platform to offer auction tea ware auction packages. 

Types of packages will include: Cup/Plate sets, Cup & Saucer sets, Tea for Two set, tea service related items, sculptural items relating to summertime high tea/tea parties, vases, centerpieces, and more!

Packages will range from approximately $40-$200 per package. We will be pairing Lake Missoula Tea products with different tea themed sets!

We will also be accepting donations to this fund during the online event!
