Over 35 years ago I walked into the ceramics room. This day would change my life. Working in clay keeps me calm. It is how I process life. As the seasons change, so does my inspiration – quiet times I hold for sculpture, active times I find myself creating vessels for food and garden adornment. I enjoy working in a variety of clays and firing in different kilns. This piece was fired In Joy Brown’s anagama kiln, the patina you see is the kiss of fire and ash.
Deb will be Joy’s guest at Joy Brown’s Studio.

Naoko Ojio


I grew up in the suburbs of Nagoya in Japan where has a long history of ceramics. I started taking classes and working with clay since I moved to the U.S. in 2003. Working with clay and people have encouraged me in many ways and enriched my life. Some of my pieces are fired in the anagama kiln at Joy Brown’s.

Naoko will be Joy’s guest at Joy Brown’s Studio.

In 1974 we built our 35 foot long woodfired tube kiln based on a design that dates back to 10th century China. Visit our workshop and watch the potters as they work at the wheel producing the variety of wares that fill this kiln. We always welcome visitors with tours through our intriguing workspace. Spend some time with us, ask us some questions, and get a taste of the potter’s life and art.

My portrait plates of people and animals employ a combination of slips, sgraffito carving and painting with underglazes. They are idiosyncratic, don’t take themselves too seriously and fulfill my compulsion to draw. I also love to throw on the wheel and produce well designed tableware that is functional and decorative. I do all my production in my home studio with a beautiful view in every season, that sits at the end of a dead end road just over the NY/CT border.

I work from my home studio in Wingdale, NY.  I fire mid-range stoneware in my electric kiln and also high-fire stoneware in wood and soda kilns at the Alison Palmer Studio in Kent, CT. I am drawn to simple and elegant forms and I enjoy playing with the contrast between a dark clay and light glazes and with the way some glazes interact with the dark clay below.

Brendan Moore


Brendan’s work is inspired by Shaker design and traditional Japanese wood-fired pottery. With more than a decade of experience, he has developed a series of simple forms and hand mixed clays for wood-firing. This careful combination has resulted in beautiful and functional works that reflect an ongoing exploration of form and fire.
