MIDDLEBURY — When you walk into the Middlebury Studio School (MSS) you’d never guess that they only moved into their new space on Route 7 south just over two years ago. A large center table welcomes you with paint-splattered stools, shelves surround the four rooms packed high and deep with pottery, and finished pieces from students and instructors nestle into every nook and cranny.
