Mud Sticks – a talk by Chris Keenan.

Come and meet acclaimed ceramicist and Make it Slow exhibitor Chris Keenan at a lunchtime talk at Woodend, Scarborough on Friday 15 November.

Chris will explain his decision to walk away from his life as an actor to explore the world of clay. From being the first apprentice to potter Edmund de Waal, to running his own London ceramics studio, Chris talks about the development of his work over the last 15 years, the different strands of his practice and the joys and challenges of making pots.

Chris Keenan makes pots from Limoges porcelain for domestic spaces – to be used, handled and looked at. Familiar forms are constantly revised and refined. “Making, for me, has always involved repetition – one has never been enough.”

His work is included in public collections across the country including the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, mima in Middlesbrough, Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool and York Art Gallery.
