We have been forced to cancel the demonstration due to be held at Mundford on 17th January, due to Covid 19. However, we are delighted to anounce that Keith has agreed to do a Zoom demonstration for us instead. Keith will be at his wheel throwing shapes that have shaped his career and life. There will also be an opportunity for questions and answers. Keith is a born and bred Londoner and a potter by trade. Many people will recognise him as a judge on The Great Pottery Throw Down & The Victorian House of Arts & Crafts, but his real job and passion is ceramics. The first bit of ceramics he ever made was a pottery owl, when aged 11 years old. The process of pottery gave him a sort of sense of escapism. It was then that he knew he wanted to be a potter and, after a brief stint as the lead singer of a punk band he became an apprentice for Harefield Pottery in London at 18. This is where Keith really learnt how to use traditional hard graft to make modern ceramics. After his apprenticeship Keith started his first studio in Highgate hand-making ceramics for lots of retailers including Conran, Habitat, Barneys NY, Monsoon, Laura Ashley, and Heals. Keith also began to develop the Word Range for the first time. Keith was originally attracted to words because of their shapes; the bucket mug ‘hot’ is his favourite because of how symmetrical the word shape is. The range has now grown to include over 80 different words that he hopes will bring smiles to people’s faces!
Keith’s design philosophy is a simple one; “I like to create stylish yet simple products that are pleasing to the eye and, above all, are practical in the modern home and make people happy! For me, less is more!”
