Walter Keeler has had his own studio since 1965. He has been an influential teacher and maker, involved both in the Harrow Studio Pottery course and at Bristol Polytechnic, where he initiated an important ceramic archive. From his current studio in Wales, Keeler throws and turns a range of objects based on, or inspired by historic ceramic forms. His most widely revered experiments have been with the teapot form, in both saltglaze stoneware and earthenware.
