Lucy Clark

Hand Build Potter

Lucy Clark is a hand build potter.  She studied under Worley Faver @ The Favery Gallery in St. Augustine, Florida.  Each pot is built in the coil method, one layer at a time.  It is then embellished or carved and set to dry for a month before it is fired.

The firing process involves bringing the kiln up very slowly to a temperature of around 1300 degrees and then it is turned off and watched until it hits 990 degrees.  At that crucial point, the piece is lifted out with Kevlar gloves and placed in sawdust to “smoke” the pot in the old Pueblo style tradition.  Lucy uses no glazes in her process.  The sheen from some of her pots comes from burnishing (polishing) the piece with a small quartz stone until it is smooth and silky to the touch.  This has to be done within a small window of time – if the clay is too wet it will leave grooves, if it is too dry it will scratch the surface.

Each piece is different in it’s aesthetic.  Lucy pulls from her many years as a massage therapist and touching people to listen to what the clay wants to be and how it wishes to be transformed into shape in the physical universe.
