Product Details

Brooks Bouwkamp crystalline pottery is one of a kind. He is a potter who lives and works in Benton Harbor, Michigan. Brooks holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Ceramics from Andrews University.

He has taught many classes for art centers. In addition, Brooks conducts ceramic throwing and firing workshops for high schools, colleges, and art centers.

Brooks crystalline pottery can be found published in books, in galleries, and in private collections throughout the United States.

The masterful use of crystalline glaze and the intricate patterns on Brook’s pottery are stunning. It is the result of a precise chemistry and kiln-firing schedule. This is necessary to grow crystals in the surface of his porcelain pots. Because the process is very unique, it is one that few potters will attempt, much less master. There may be 50 potters in the US who call themselves Crystalline glaze potters. Brooks is clearly one of the best.

During the firing process, the crystals form and grow into unpredictable patterns. Brooks work stands alone at the gallery. You can use these pots in a variety of ways. A single flower inserted into a vase or as a stand alone object of beauty Brooks work is extraordinary and unique.
