The masterful use of Crystalline glaze and intricate patterns on Brook’s clay work are the result of a precise chemistry and kiln-firing schedule necessary to grow crystals in the surface of his porcelain pots.  This process is very unique and one that few potters will even attempt, much less master.  There may be 50 potters in the US who call themselves Crystalline glaze potters, and Brooks is clearly one of the best.
During the firing process, the crystals form and grow into unpredictable patterns.  His work stand alone in our gallery and can be used in a variety of ways.  A single bloom inserted into a vase or as a stand alone object of beauty Brooks work is extraordinary and unique.
