6824

Ballard #27 light green 10 inch low planter 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 10 inch long low planter was a typical shape of the 1950s, used to start bulbs or as a base for flower arranging or ikebana arrangements. It is in his earlier light green glaze.

This piece carries the shape number 27 I think but the impression is a little bit unclear. It is in excellent condition and is from Ballard's middle production period as there is a band of chocolate brown underglaze visible at the bottom rim where it meets the bottom of the sides of the bowl.

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 is an unusual shape for Ballard. It carries the shape number 24. The glaze is a green glaze which shows some of the chocolate brown underglaze at the rim. It is from his later period as there is almost no chocolate brown showing on the bottom rim of the vase. It is in excellent shape.

8270

Ballard #19 early chocolate brown glazed vase Vermont Studio potter Stanley Ballard (1917-1960) graduated from Alfred University’s highly respected Ceramic Program in 1939, having studied there while these influential teachers were part of the faculty: Marion Fosdick, Charles Harder, Clarence Merritt, and C. Katherine Nelson.

This signed and numbered #19 vase stands 5 5/8 inches tall. The glaze is a rich chocolate brown. Out of the 600+ pieces in my collection, I only own 5-6 pieces in this glaze. In my opinion, this is a vase that was not glazed with an overglaze. There is no "chocolate brown band" at the bottom of the sides. The glaze is extremely mottled, particularly in the inside.

Based on this mark I think it is closer to the 1948 date when Ballard started to use incised shape numbers as part of the bottom mark.

This vase is in excellent vintage condition.

967

Ballard early #15 4 lobed celadon green vase Produced by Vermont Mid-Century studio potter Stanley Ballard, a student of Glidden Parker at Alfred University in the 1940s who worked in the Burlington area, this shape #15 vase stands 5 1/4 inches tall and features 4 lobes at the top rim. It was made in three heights. This is the middle size vase.

It is in excellent condition and an early example of the shape. I can tell this by looking at both the glaze color the grainy appearance of the glaze. It does not have a large blended chocolate top rim, but does have the middle period bottom chocolate underglaze rim at the bottom. It most likely carried a Mark #2 label. It is well marked on the bottom with the incised S. Ballard Vermont mark. It carries Mark 10.

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 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. This vase carries both the shape number and the Ballard signature but they are very faint.

The chocolate underglaze can be seen at the top, the inside, and underneath the mottling on the body. This early white glaze is stunning. The glaze is a standard early shade of blue he used often. The vase is in excellent condition.

A very interesting shape and glaze combo by Stanley Ballard. Add it to your American Art Pottery collection or Studio pottery collection today.

2789

Ballard bulbous studio mottled brown vase This unusual Stanley Ballard vase stands 6 1/2 inches tall. The opening at the top is 3 1/2 inches. The glaze is the very early tan over the chocolate brown with very heavy mottling on the outside of the piece. The inside of the vase is is glazed with the same vase as the outside. I almost think it is a piece which only has the underglaze and is missing the top glaze. It is a great example of Ballard's early work. It is in excellent condition.

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 not dated but shows the heavy cylindrical rings of being hand thrown I think. It is most likely from either 1945 or 1946.

Click for more detail...

6288

Bennington Potters #1535 Trivet/Plaque 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.

This square 8 inch diameter trivet / plaque was advertised in the 1964 catalogue as 1535, 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 Eggs. Its original 1964 price was $3.00. I recently learned that the six 8 inch square flat tiles were all designed by Gloria Gil, David's first wife with whom he started the company in 1948.

It features 6 eggs in various stages. Done in an abstract stylized manner, the eggs are molded in relief and the incised areas are glazed in a very dark green and black.

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 1535 and has the spark mark on the forearm inside a rectangle made up of COOPERATIVE DESIGN and BENNINGTON POTTERS VERMONT. It is in excellent vintage condition.

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.

This fluted 9 5/8 inch diameter plate was advertised in the 1964 catalogue as B 1650 and titled "Greek Head", an ashtray which could also be hung on the wall as a plaque as it had a built-in wire on the back. Its original 1964 price was $5.00.

It features a very stylized Head with a stylized beard done orange. The 1964 ad states the this piece was available in white or turquoise with colored accents. The glaze I believe is an early white one as it is quite speckled with two shades of white. The eyes of the head have been painted green. and an orange stain used on the beard.

This is a confirmed David Gil design. It was confirmed by Gloria Gil in May 2012.

The back of the plate/plaque has a wire hanger which was embedded in the pottery. It is signed 1651 and has the spark mark on the forearm. I would guess it is from the 1960-1962 period. It is in excellent condition.

Bennington Potters are 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.

Bennington Potters #1460 Crown Safety Ashtray Here is a whimsical modern stoneware piece from the late David Gil at Bennington Potters in Vermont. started by David Gil in 1948.

They are among the few American studio potteries that turned into production potteries in the midcentury. It evolved into a co-operative of different art potters. They made their bread and butter by making gorgeous modern styled dinnerware that was distributed throughout the US by Raymore and sold in fine department stores.

This is #1460 / #1460T and was called Crown Safety Ashtray in the 1964 catalogue. It is a two part design consisting of an underbowl that can be used separately and a top cover with the safety edge.

This was produced in four colors: White, Turquoise, Charcoal or Brown. This is the iconic Turquoise color. It is marked with the Cooperative Design Bennington Vermont rectangle mark which is a transitional mark used from 1960 to perhaps 1964.
