Stacey Stanhope

Salt Fired Pottery

Stacey's pottery is greatly influenced by  animals and  the beauty of the surrounding farms. She has been making functional and decorative clay art, for 18 years.  What started out as a love for horses and the need to constantly draw them, turned into recreating the whole farm yard and bringing those animals to life in her studio.  Stacey currently  lives and works in Orwell, VT.

Stacey's work is Salt fire with Wax resist designs.  All the images on the pots are painted  with wax in the negative areas and then brushed with a black slip ( liquid clay).   This effect makes the pots have a wood cut  look to them.   The pots are then fired  in a Salt kiln.  This is a kiln where regular table salt is  is put into  the kiln at the end of the firing.  The Salt reacts with the  silica in the clay and  forms a glaze.
