Stan Irvin

Stan Irvin received his M.F.A. in Ceramics from the University of Texas at Austin in 1974 where he studied primarily with Ishmael Soto and Ron Bowling. Stan developed the ceramics program at Laguna Gloria Art Museum in Austin in that same year. In 1976 he set up the ceramics program at St. Edward’s University where he taught ceramics, clay figure sculpture, drawing and other studio courses for many years.

Maintaining his studio in central Austin, Stan focuses on hand building and altered wheel throwing in high-temperature reduction firing.  His work may be seen at ClayWays of Austin, Sunset Canyon Pottery and Gallery in Dripping Springs, Texas and at the Texas Clay Festival held annually in Gruene, Texas.  Stan's work won first place in the 2009 Texas Teapot Festival and has been included in numerous state and national juried competitions, as well as the Art Of The Pot studio tour in Austin.
