Vermont Studio potter Stanley Ballard (1917-1960) graduated from Alfred University’s highly respected Ceramic Program in 1939, having studied there under these influential teachers: Marion Fosdick, Charles Harder, Clarence Merritt, and C. Katherine Nelson.


 From 1937-1939 he was a classmate of Glidden Parker. He had his studio in Burlington Vermont from 1946 -1960 until his untimely tragic death in February 1960. 



 Produced by Vermont Mid-Century studio potter Stanley Ballard  who worked in the Burlington area, this Ballard squat bulbous mustard white vase with heavy mottling is one of Ballard's earliest examples I have found to date. I have another example of this shape which has the date 1945 on it. This vase has the recessed base and the S. Ballard in relief signature without the word Vermont which would come later. It is most likely from either 1945 or 1946. It also has a #10 in red pencil on it as well as three initials.


It stands 6 1/2 inches tall. The opening at the top is 3 1/2 inches. The glaze is the very early mustard white over the chocolate brown with very heavy mottling on the outside of the piece. The inside of the vase is glazed with the white glaze also. It is a great example of Ballard's early work. It is in excellent condition.  Vermont Studio potter Stanley Ballard (1917-1960) graduated from Alfred University’s highly respected Ceramic Program in 1939, having studied there under these influential teachers: Marion Fosdick, Charles Harder, Clarence Merritt, and C.

 Produced by Vermont Mid-Century studio potter Stanley Ballard  who worked in the Burlington area, this very early studio piece meaures 10 1/8 inches long x 3 inches wide x 2 1/4 inches tall. It is signed with the interlaced intials SB, for Stanley Ballard. Only the earliest works were signed this way. It has a thick application of the early mustard yellow glaze over the chocolate brown underglaze. It is in excellent condition. Later examples of this shape were larger and signed Ballard Vermont.  Vermont Studio potter Stanley Ballard (1917-1960) graduated from Alfred University’s highly respected Ceramic Program in 1939, having studied there under these influential teachers: Marion Fosdick, Charles Harder, Clarence Merritt, and C.

 Produced by Vermont Mid-Century studio potter Stanley Ballard  who worked in the Burlington area, this shape seems to be one of the early ones by Ballard which didn't make it to the later production period. The vase measures 5 1/2 inches high x 5 1/4 inches wide. The opening is 4 1/4 inches long x 2 3/8 inches wide. Each one I own either has no shape number or is number 21 with the early chocolate brown band around the bottom dating it from his middle period of production. The chocolate underglaze cannot easily  be seen at the top and underneath the mottling on the body as the leopard skin overglaze extends to the bottom of the vase. This early black leopard glaze is stunning. It is heavily mottled and covers the entire vase inside and outside except the base. The vase is in excellent condition. A very interesting shape and glaze combo by Stanley Ballard.

Here is a whimsical modern stoneware piece from the late David Gil at Bennington Potters in Vermont. started by David Gil in 1948. It is from the 1959-1960 period when Gil included both the words Design Cooperative and Bennington Vermont.


Bennington Potters is among the few American studio potteries that turned into production potteries in the midcentury. It evolved into a co-operative of different art potters. 


After 1960, they made their bread and butter by making gorgeous modern styled dinnerware that was distributed throughout the US and sold in fine department stores. In their 1964 catalogue, Gil described their creations as "Art Objects in the Practical Realm" - Museum Honored, Hand-crafted, Modestly Priced."


This square 8 inch diameter trivet / plaque was advertised in the 1964 catalogue as 1532, a trivet which could also be hung on the wall as a plaque as it had a built-in wire on the back. This piece is shown in the 1964 catalogue as and is titled there Sun. Its original 1964 price was $3.00. This was designed by David Gil.


It features a cheery sun done in colors of yellow and green. 


The back of the trivet/plaque has a wire hanger which was embedded in the pottery. It retains all four original rubber feet which protects the flat surface upon which one sets it. It is signed 1532 and has the spark mark on the forearm inside a rectangle made up of COOPERATIVE DESIGN and BENNINGTON POTTERS VERMONT. This is a transition mark used only in the 1960-1962 time period. It is in excellent vintage condition.
