Doris Kuehn

Lucky Crane Pottery is the home pottery studio of Doris Kuehn in Oliver, B.C., the land of orchards and vineyards. Doris has been making pottery since the 1980s.

“The pieces I make are wheel thrown or hand-built and the glazes I make from scratch from earthen materials. Even the raku clay it made from reclaimed clay and grog - pulverized pre-fired clay particles”.

Raku – Is an ancient pottery technique initially used for hand-built tea cups for ceremonial tea ceremonies. Modern Western raku involves placing the red-hot pottery into combustible materials in a chamber which is then sealed, consuming the oxygen within, creating a reduction environment, and beautiful, unpredictable, glaze finishes result.
