We've sold a number of his pieces, but still have these two left.
     One of the earliest of the break-away potters of the post war period, William Creitz had studio in Oregon. Beginnning in the 1950s, Creitz, a student of Ray Grimm at Portland State University combined oriental, particularly Japanese influences with Byzantine and art deco sensibilities. According to A History of Ceramics in the Pacific Northwest, he “has always been interested in pushing form to the point of exaggeration and in the ornate qualities of decoration. He was a member of the Linnton Potters Group from 1961-68.
The well-known ceramcist, Tom Coleman, cites him as one of his inspirations along with Shoji Hamada, David Shaner, and Robert Sperry. Creitz has won many prizes, most notably at the Ceramics Monthly Prize for Pottery at Ceramics National in 1967 held at the Everson Museum in Syracuse.

    He is the subject of the 30 minute documentary: Billy Creitz Makes a Teapot and his work is illustrated extensively in Ceramics - Techniques and Projects - 1977.
