Chris Keenan works exclusively in porcelain, with a limited range of glazes and his mastery of these materials is widely admired. He makes both functional and non-functional work. These are largely made in small batches and for these, repetition is key. Keenan says the word repetition belies the reality that each piece represents a separate examination of the form in question and is a nuanced response to a previous incarnation. His interactive collections of pieces have a sense of playfulness incorporating elements of theatre which he feels is a nod to my earlier incarnation as an actor.
