Bill Creitz / Bowl


Bill Creitz was a beloved potter and one of the earliest break-away potters of the post war period. We are incredibly fortunate to have a small collection of his pieces in the store. This bowl is glazed in a traditional Japanese reminiscent style, with grooves and holes to hold chopsticks. Creitz’s incredible abilities are evident when you hold one of his pieces. Almost perfect shaped and beautifully illustrated.
