Posey's work combines thrown, altered and hand-built sections. These sections remade separately and then assembled. She uses gold decals as a contrast to her painterly surface. The pots are majolica on terra cotta. Majolica is a glaze tradition that began in the Middle East in the 9th century with a tin-opacified glaze. The majolica glaze is very smooth and white, which makes a good surface for decorating. The various colors are applied usually with a brush to the glazed surface to create the active patterns and decorations. The pots are then fired to cone 04 in an electric kiln. After the firing the glazed surface maintains both the line quality of the patterns and the colors of the decoration.
Posey Bacopoulos, New York, NY
“In my work, it is my intention to create pots that enter people's everyday lives in a direct and intimate way. My goal is to integrate form, function and surface in a manner that brings a sense of excitement to my work. I am continually exploring the relationship between surface decoration and form, while in the surface treatment of my work I use line, pattern and color to create the vibrant surfaces. The floral motifs on my pots are patterns rather than actual representations that serve to divide the space in interesting ways.”
