Chris has always made work for domestic spaces – pots to be used; pots to be handled; pots to be looked at. He was taught to throw with Limoges porcelain and it remains the only clay he has ever worked with. At an early stage in his apprenticeship, he used tenmoku and celadon glazes in combination for the first time - unaware of their iconic status in the ceramic lexicon.
Making pots, for him, has always involved repetition: one has never been enough. From his first clumsy and tentative attempts to throw cylinders with one pound balls of porcelain, the development and refinement of form through repetition has been a rewarding process of enquiry and exploration. The rhythm inherent to this repetitive process is also intensely satisfying.
His desire for consistency, achieved through careful and considered observation, exists simultaneously alongside the need to re-examine and alter – it is a continuous dialogue.
New work by Chris Keenan will be in the gallery and on the website shortly.
