Thank you for visiting Clay by Stacia! I make high quality stoneware pottery from my home in Kyle, Texas. Each item is handmade on my pottery wheel or from a slab of clay. After decorating, I fire, glaze and re-fire each piece. My ring holders have glass melted in the bottom, which crackles as it cools, creating a beautiful effect. In addition to selling on Etsy, I vend at various festivals and fairs throughout central Texas. You can also find my work at Artisans: A Texas Gallery located at 234 West Main St, Fredericksburg, TX 78624.

If you live near the Kyle, TX area, feel free to stop by to pick up your purchases, and I can refund your shipping charges.

Unique and Durable

I started my ceramics shop with one main goal in mind: to create unique pottery that people can use every day.

All of my pottery is thrown on my pottery wheel or built with slabs of clay, making each piece one-of-a-kind. I also use glazes that I mix myself to add that special, personal touch.

To ensure that all of my pottery is durable enough to stand the test of time, I fire to 2185 degrees F. Pottery fired to high temperatures is natuarally stronger than low fire pottery.

I also test all of my glazes to make sure they will withstand everyday use. I have soaked a sample of each glaze in vinegar to make sure it will withstand the acids naturally found in foods. I also boil each glaze sample in dishwashing detergent, to ensure that each of my pieces will have a long dishwasher life. My promise to you is that I will only use materials that pass my rigorous durability tests.

This is my basic creation process:
- I weigh a lump of clay to ensure it is the correct amount, and wedge, or knead it, to remove any air bubbles and even out the moisture content.
- I make the piece either by throwing on my wheel, or rolling out a slab of clay and forming it into the shape I want.
- I let the piece dry for a day or so, then trim away excess clay from the bottom, add handles, and make other adjustments. Then I cover it in plastic to keep it from drying too quickly.
- The piece dries slowly over the course of one to two weeks. If it dries too quickly, it could crack.
- I load my kiln and fire all my dry pieces the first time. This is called a bisque firing.
- The pieces are removed, and I glaze them either by dipping or painting.
- After the glaze dries, I fire them again.
- When the kiln has cooled, I remove each piece and inspect it, then smooth any rough spots with a special stone.
- Now the pottery is ready for you to use and enjoy!

I generally keep your name and postal address for less than a week (though Etsy retains this information, and I can access it, acording to their privacy policy). I generally keep a shortened version of your user name (for example, if your username is "Elizzagurrl5," My records may show "Eliz"), the date, price, and item you ordered (and email address if you provide it to me directly) indefinitely, unless you request I delete it. I have no access to your credit card information, unless you provide it to me over the phone, in which case I will destroy it, generally within a week.
