Walter Keeler (born 1942)
Cut branch dish
2005

In the work of Walter Keeler, functional objects
suggest complex ideas through their form.
The use of branch or ‘crabstock’ details in
ceramics became popular in the 18th century.
Keeler reinterprets this device, creating a dish
protected by a ring of truncated branches that
recall a crown of thorns. It is a dish for forbidden
fruit, perhaps.

Made in Monmouthshire, Wales
Earthenware, with coloured glazes
Museum no. C.141-2006
Gift of Nicholas and Judith Goodison through The Art Fund
