For over fourteen years my work has reflected the love and respect I have for Japanese art. All our pieces are created at our studio, by myself and my very talented daughter Megan McCrea. We use Raku clay and formulate most of our own Raku glazes from raw materials. About 80% of our work is Raku fired, an ancient Japanese method causing the glaze to crackle and the copper in the glaze to change various colors, insuring each piece to be “one of a kind”.
My Body of Work represents over 50 years of “playing with clay”. I love making functional pottery, but creating the Raku Shards with Megan is most gratifying. Over the years my pure Japanese theme has expanded to include the world.
