Thomas Mackenzie Brown received a BFA Degree in Art with specialization in technical ceramics from California State University at Long Beach.
In 1983, Thomas studied crystalline glaze development with little direction as there was little experience or documentation published on the subject of crystals. Working with crystalline glazes quickly became his passion.
Thomas has been an Art Instructor in California during the past 16 years. He is currently working on his post graduate degree in technical ceramics and glaze calculations. His constant endeavor in the subject of ceramics is to produce new, exciting colors and versions of crystalline glazed pieces that are well made, beautiful to look at and help add value to the understanding of form as it relates to crystalline and other glazes.
