TRIBEza Magazine Names Keith Kreeger one of AUstin's 2015 People of the Year!
"Here’s the funny thing about one of the hottest names in Austin’s restaurant scene right now: He’s not a chef, or even a bartender, he’s a ceramicist. Keith Kreeger’s work is playing a major role in how we dine — both in Austin and across the country." –Tribeza
Our work bridges the gap between traditional ceramics and contemporary design. We firmly believe that objects matter and everything we make is designed to be used and enjoyed on a daily basis.
Keith Kreeger is an Artist, Designer and Maker. In 2009, after living on Cape Cod for twelve years running his contemporary craft gallery he moved to Austin, TX.
Moving to a new studio halfway across the country, with new materials and a new kiln, Kreeger embraced the changed and began to focus on the heart of his work. Forms and the details within became more and more important. Design motifs were chosen to highlight the clean and simple lines of the form.
Keith continued to focus on the singular idea that "Objects Matter" and that his work reflect that simple phrase. The current collections exemplify clean, polished, modern design. The details of the work and the purpose of enhancing the everyday became the focus of each and every collection.
Keith is President of the Board of Big Medium, the arts nonprofit that produces the East Austin Studio Tour, West Austin Studio Tour and the Texas Biennial. Keith is an active supporter for many organizations in Austin including the Austin Food and Wine Alliance, Communities in Schools and the Andy Roddick Foundation.
In my home, mornings begin with a cabinet full of memories. Each mug I have to choose from has its own story. I’m reminded of a mentor, a friend, Massachusetts, or an artist I dream of one day meeting. I love watching our guests open that same cabinet as each cup is carefully studied. It’s not long before a friend finds the one that speaks to them. I make pottery because I think the objects we use on a daily basis are as important as what they hold.
I think that a meal with friends that you’ve spent hours preparing calls for dinnerware crafted with the same care. I think flowers picked fresh from your garden look better in a vase you’ve picked as well. I think you deserve to know the maker of the objects you use every day.
