Title: Double Vessel

Artist: Jonathan Keep

Variously referred to as potter or sculptor, Keep creates metaphoric pots that seek a balance between an inherited aesthetic language of ceramic and the motion and direction of the human form, both in material and poetic justification. ‘Double Vessel’ explores a duality in a single vessel, the pot refigured as two with elegant use of shape to appropriately form a resolved silhouette at either angle, the elements having been thrown on the wheel in an unrefined clay then carefully arranged in an imperfect symmetry.
