On Saturday 18th November 2017 Goldmark will be opening its first major exhibition of ceramics by Walter Keeler. Walter Keeler (b 1942) is a British studio potter best known for his salt glaze pottery. Keeler was born in London and attended Harrow School of Art, where he was trained by Michael Casson. Writer Oliver Watson described him as ‘one of the most important and influential potters of the 1980s’. Keeler’s work is held in a number of public collections including Victoria & Albert Museum, National Museum Wales, American Craft Museum, New York, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, USA and the Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo. goldmarkart.com
'Working towards an exhibition is a very strange business, because it implies that you have a vision for this space and that this collection ofwork is going to convey something quite specific. You've got some reason for having this show that is going to send people away different from the way they came in. What really happens is I go out into my workshop and I make pots, and the pots accumulate in their own special way. I haven't made them to any purpose other than my need to make pots, though I've tried to include a variety of forms, big and small.
I suppose inevitably it is going to reflect me, which is kind of daunting. I haven’t reinvented myself in order to make a cohesive exhibition, so if it's not cohesive it's because I'm not cohesive. I hope above all it reflects my feelings about the business of being a potter, of making things for other people.'
