While Keith Rice-Jones’s early training in England as a woodwork teacher was rooted in the Arts and Crafts tradition, the Bauhaus and modernist ideas became a huge influence on his work. Keith discovered clay in the early 70s and it continues to be a compulsion and ongoing journey of discovery.
The design heritage and way of working resonates in his work but there are also hints of a fascination with culture and ideas of ritual. Earlier work with stylized functional vessels and containers continues, though Keith’s current focus is with large sculptural work. Keith and his wife Celia share a studio in Burnaby (BC).
