Christy Keeney will be giving students an insight into his fascinating creative process:
- He will demonstrate the process of how he models and builds his "Flat Head" sculptures.
- He will show students how the face is built up, how the piece eventually stands on its own and how to dry it out with the help of a heat gun.
- After the demo, students will be guided by Christy to make their own ceramic "Flat Heads".
- Christy will fire students work in his own studio and we will organise a collection point for the pieces to take home.
Christy Keeney studied ceramics at the Royal College of Art in London. His figurative ceramics is an investigation into the human condition, and his forms are stretched to the point where sculpture and drawing overlap. After spending 17 years in London, Christy Keeney returned to his native Donegal where he now lives and works. His sculpted slab built heads and figures demonstrate a wonderful sense of draughtmanship as details are drawn into the wet clay surface. www.christykeeney.co.uk
