VISION + PURPOSE
CERAMIC WARE + CARE
Little Clay Studio's ceramic ware is food safe, created with lead-free glazes and vitrified for everyday use. In terms of food-safety, you want your ceramic ware to be vitrified so the clay does not absorb liquids. Each piece is specified as oven, microwave or dishwasher safe on the product pages.
Hand washing is recommended, and care instructions are included to help preserve your pottery for years to come.
"Vitrification transforms clay from a porous body to a surface bonded to its glass particles at a kiln fire appropriate to the clay's cone. Vitrified clay is water impermeable, making glazed and specified unglazed surfaces functional and water resistant."
JEWELRY + ACCENTS
Each jewelry piece is lightweight and tested for optimal size and thickness for wear. Home accents are created with a range of glazes and are meant for decorative purposes.

COLLABORATIONS + MEDIA
Little Clay Studio has collaborated with the Blanton Museum of Art, E.A.S.T, Faire, Hyatt, Madewell Pop-Ups, independent shops, and Austin's new downtown library.
Little Clay Studio is a collection of artistic ceramic accents made in Austin, Texas by Traci Ward. Each piece is an expression of clay, color, and curvilinear design.
Inspired by a serendipitous encounter at The Contemporary Art School of Austin, Little Clay Studio's purpose is to create meaningful pieces that convey a story, and share the art of the process with clay enthusiasts.
