Small Object Exchange

Every year it’s such a treat to see the slide presentation of the attendees’ artwork during the symposium, but it’s just a brief introduction to all of the talented people who are attending. Last year we introduced the Small Object Exchange to further highlight the diversity of work being made in our community. It was greeted with overwhelming support so we are making this a part of the Symposium each year moving forward.

If you would like to participate, please bring a small clay object, no larger than 6” x 6” x 6” with you at check in. The piece should represent your work and is something you want to exchange for another artist’s work.

Your piece will be numbered at check-in, and we will provide information cards for you to fill out and keep displayed with your small object throughout the week.  On Wednesday evening after the closing remarks, there will be a reception where we put all the numbers in a hat and each person who participated in the small object exchange will draw a number out of a hat and receive the corresponding numbered piece. In an effort to tie together the Attendee Slide Presentation and Small Object Exchange, please have one of your four images be an image of the small object you plan to exchange.

We look forward to seeing your work!
