Stacy, a born and raised Houstonian, is one of Lotus’ former University of Houston students. It was at U of H that she first fell in love with clay and began her journey in ceramic art. After graduating, she then went on to earn her MFA in ceramic sculpture from Houston Baptist University. Since that time, she has taught ceramic sculpture and pottery to students of all ages, both in academic and private settings.
She has show her work across the state of Texas as well as internationally, and has participated in programs such as the Atelierhaus Hilmsen and Sojourn residencies. Stacy has a passion for sharing the gift of clay with others, and volunteers with organizations such as ClayHouston and Empty Bowls.
As a ceramic sculptor and potter, Stacy enjoys creating both small and large scale ceramic artworks as well as functional pottery. Stacy’s sculpture is heavily informed by archaic art and architecture, patterns found in the nature and geological forms, all seasoned with a hint of her deep love of science fiction, mythology, and fantasy. Her pottery takes these these and combines them with the everyday kitschy objects she grew up seeing in her grandparents’ homes, incorporating imagery and motifs that inspire the best memories in her heart.
Stacy joined Third Coast Clay in 2015 as the Tuesday evening instructor. Today she teaches ceramics courses at Houston Baptist University and sells her own line of functional work, lovingly named Kuropottery.
