Tucson Clay Co-op Studio, School & Gallery
My passion is to make pots which transcend themselves, which remind us of the smell of fresh rain, a forgotten melody, the colour of twilight. . .To make pots which become more than themselves.
And when I create such a pot, I bow to the kiln and say “thank you”
Maxine Krasnow, a native New Yorker, has been making pots for over 30 years. She has studied with Makoto Yabe, Jim Makins, Ken Fergusen, Clary Ilian, Rob Forbes and her beloved mentor, Byron Temple.

About the Process
For the last five years, I have been firing my work in a Bruce Bower wood kiln. I stoke the kiln for 5 hours, with 100 running feet of wood that has been soaked for at least five days in a super saturated solution of soda ash and baking soda.
How to Purchase
My work can be purchased at the Outdoor Gallery at the Tucson Clay Co-op, 3326 North Dodge Boulevard or on our online store, www.tucsonclayco-op.com
