About Kevin Crowe
I fire my kiln with wood, a labor-intensive process with no short cuts. Stoking pine late at night, we arrive at an aesthetic that is quiet and contemplative; one that requires the public to meet it halfway. I make pots that ask for – and give – more than a sensitivity to interior design. I want my work to touch that distant quiet place in each of us. Balance, home, grace. I make large bowls and serving platters to encourage the ritual sharing of food by many hands – a time that will return. Larger vessels harken back to a time when these were our large storage containers. They are my expression of hope.
The potter’s work is healing work. It affirms and celebrates the dignity of food stored, prepared and shared in joyful awareness and assures us that the solution to the environmental and community crisis lies under our feet. And that it is worth standing on and for.
