Just a taste of Sunday…with Walter Keeler

318 Ceramics hosted a master class with ceramic engineer Walter (Wally) Keeler. A fascination with sherds led Wally from Mud Larking, via Art School where he found his vocation, to world respected artist/maker.

His rigorous approach and attention to detail was tempered by his warmth and humanity. He gave generously, everyone at the demonstration was enlightened, enchanted and humbled.

The images: Thrown and altered jug, extruded and altered jug plus home made tools for marking, thrown and altered teapot.

The pottery is the lean to behind everyone, take note of the corrugated iron structure of the pottery.
