BA Ceramics students meet potter Walter Keeler

Final year undergraduate BA Ceramics students currently studying a project entitled ‘Function, Interactivity and Design’ recently took the opportunity to meet potter Walter Keeler and see his latest body of work before its exhibition at the Collect International Art Fair for Contemporary Objects being held in London next month.

Walter Keeler’s work is informed by his passion for pots from the past, but also by making and firing. His work often challenges the user to negotiate with an unexpected pot to do an ordinary job.

Over 5 days, the Crafts Council’s Collect presents an unrivalled opportunity to see and buy contemporary museum-quality ceramics, glass, jewellery, wood, metal and textiles from established and emerging artists and makers.
