About Keith Rice-Jones
While early training in England as a woodwork teacher was rooted in the Arts and Crafts tradition, the Bauhaus and modernist ideas became a huge influence. I discovered clay in the early 70s and it continues to be a compulsion and ongoing journey of discovery.
The design heritage and way of working resonates in my work but there are also hints of a fascination with different cultures and ideas of ritual.
Earlier work with stylized functional vessels and containers continues, though my current focus is with large sculptural work.
