Following a career teaching ceramics and clay sculpture at St. Edwards University in Austin, Stan and his wife, Vicki, recently set up Stan Irvin Unique Clay Works at 215 Water St. in downtown Rockport, Texas. His work has been included in numerous state, regional, and national juried competitions, as well as the Art of the Pot studio tour in Austin. Combining hand building, wheel throwing, and sculpture techniques Stan’s work has changed considerably since moving to the Texas coast in 2017. Elements of nature, and birds in particular, have found their way onto the surfaces of his vessels. Stan’s work may be seen at Austin Pottery Studio and Gallery in Austin and at his gallery/studio in Rockport.
