Black Iron Bowl
The Artist - Laurel Keeley Hon SWAc
I have been a potter for forty-one years. My work in clay has been pre-occupied with surface rather than with utility, and so my ceramics have always stood between Craft and Art. I have a BA Hons in English and American Arts from Exeter University and an MA gained in Toronto, Canada. It was while working on a PhD in American Literature at Exeter University that I finally transferred to Exeter College of Art to pursue Ceramics – an affair of the heart with clay and pots that had endured since childhood. My first Pottery was established in Devon in 1977, and since then my work has been continuously exhibited and collected throughout the UK. In 2020 I was proud to be elected as an Honorary Academician of the South West Academy.
