This is a wheel thrown jug with an applied handle and sculpted
face. All of Stacy's work is sculpted by him and hand painted by him with great
detail. For this reason and the fact that he works full time at a leather
factory full-time the number of his pieces are low.
When I asked Stacy how long it took to make these jugs....he said
the hand painting of the glazing takes about 6 hours alone. He paints 1 jug per day. That doesn't
include the time preparing the clay, throwing the jug on the potter's wheel,
applying the handle andsculpting the face. The jug is bisque fired to about
1900 degrees. The glazes are then applied by hand painting. The design is
hand painted with glaze three times for the colors tofire sobright. The jug is clear-glazed over the colored glazed and fired again to about 2340 degrees. The end
result is incredible.
Thisnew style two paintedface jug isover6.25 inches tall and was born on Dec. 3-1-13.
The jug is very detailed in bright glazes....the pictures do not capture the bright color and beauty of the glazes.
The jug is in MINT Condition...NO Chips!!!...NO Cracks!!!...NO
This is the story handwritten on the back.
"He was out checking on his beaver traps when he was caught in the Grizzly area.
Good thing he had a boy scout with him on the trip."
Sorry about the amateur pictures, the bright white spots are camera flash spots.
The jug is hand incised on the bottom w/ "Stacy Lambert,
Clemmons, N.C.", stamped "STACY" and dated 3-1-13.
BIOGRAPH: STACY LAMBERT
He studied graphic design and was
intrigued by the graphic works of M.C. Escher and the surrealistic works of
Salvador Dali. He studied the art of pottery under the guidance of Seagrove
potter, Sid Luck. Like any smart apprentice, he learned the technical aspects
of firing and glazing from the master, then as the years went by, he added his
own unique talents of painting and graphics to his original creations. His rich
color pallet and his three-dimensional interpretations of people and animals
are as much fun as a potter ought to have. Collectors are having nearly as much
fun collecting everything he produces as Stacy is producing it. If you see
piece of his art that speaks to you, make plans to take it home quickly before
it speaks to someone else, because it will. Since the work is all hand painted
and sculpted by Stacy the number of pieces he produces is quite low, thus
making his work even more desirable to the serious collector of rare pieces.
