Kris Marubayashi is a sansei (third generation Japanese American) living in Sacramento, CA. She comes from a family with a strong
interest in creativity. Her father was an architect/landscape architect who studied with Frank Lloyd Wright, and her mother was trained
in decorative arts. Kris was born and raised in New York, and moved to California to learn about clay. Although she pursued other interests,
eventually she returned to clay after a break of thirty years, in 2005.

Kris uses a slab roller to create tiles and caldera which are sculptural forms resembling volcanic eruptions.
She throws bowls and cups on a wheel. Using a mid-fire clay (cone 4-6), her pieces are highly textural, and often
resemble rocks and geological formations. The work is visually strong, usually rendered in a rich dark chocolate
brown color.

She first worked with clay in a class taught by Niss Houde, Mamaroneck NY in 1972 and has particpated in study programs
in Davenport, CA and at San Francisco State University.
