Kevin Crowe works in the Blue Ridge foothills, where he lives with his wife Linda. His sons Bram and Kai live in Nelson County and Charlottesville.
Kevin produces wood-fired functional stoneware with strong Asian and English roots. His work ranges from 4” teabowls to 48” vases.
Kevin's pots are fired in a 450 cubic foot, 3- chamber combination anagama and noborigama kiln. Firings last 7 days, consuming 8 cords of wood and firing 1500 and 2000 pots.The kiln is fired twice a year when the moon is right and it's not soccer season.
