Kevin Crowe works in the Blue Ridge foothills, where he lives with his wife Linda. His sons Bram and Kai live in Nelson County.
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 anagama. Firings last 7 days, consuming 8 cords of wood and firing 1500 to 2000 pots. The kiln is fired twice a year when the moon is right and it's not soccer season.
