The charm of Greg Crowes’ wood-fired pottery lies in the soft and comfortable texture that is carefully shaped with modern lines and pleasant aesthetics. There is a distinctly natural feel to hiswares compared to that of gas-fired stoneware pottery. The matte finish of the wood-fired pottery,the organic touch that serves as a complement to food. Using traditional firing techniques with a combinationof wood ash & salt, fire,and clay materials, the outer texture of Greg’s pottery is a result of many years of development to bring out the very best of these raw natural resources.
Greg Crowe's pottery representstheessence of modern aesthetics that is defined by a combination of modern and traditional styles. Its primary appeal is not only in its form, but also its functional design for ease of serving foods, and its tactile texture.
Greg Crowe's wood-fired pottery is an amalgamation of contemporary design while seamlessly melding together its traditional roots. It’s simple yet functional & is perfect for either special occasions or for daily use.
GregCrowe masters both multifunctionality and practicality. Many of the products are versatile in function such as the jugs, which can also be used as vases or utensil holders. The shapes and sizes of all bowls, vases, and accessories are individual in form andfunctionality. The bowls can be used for serving foods individually, as a set, as well as for both indoor or outdoor settings.
" I have always loved throwing on the pottery wheel, it was really the "hook" that got me interested in pottery and has always remained so. I love all aspects of throwing but bowls in all their shapes, sizes, and purposes have endured as my favorite form. For the most part, smaller functional bowls, are relaxing and meditative to throw. When the circumstances are right, when everything is going right, I feel they almost seem to throw themselves.
I never cease to get bored with the journey from the base to the rim, the line, profile, or elevation, call it what you will. The suspension in space, defying gravity, wheel not too fast.
With the expanded and textured bowls, it is completely different, but somewhat the same, the process breaks most rules of throwing. For me, the form must still be correct or right but it is far more about exploring the surface, the possibilities of the expansion/throwing of the bowl on the exterior surface. What the throwing process will lead to on the exterior surface, it is not an added surface but a result of the process of throwing."
