Blue Owl by Christy Keeney


A distinctive and unique Blue Owl sculpture by Christy Keeney. This slab built ceramic piece demonstrates Christy’s fascination with the construction of his figures and the way in which his work overlaps between sculpture and drawing: with details drawn into the wet surface of the clay.

Dimensions: (W) 38 x (H) 40 x (D) 6 cm

“I visited a retrospective exhibition of Picasso, at the Tate gallery, in the early 80s when I was at college, and many of my influences came from seeing that work. Especially a collection of small cardboard cut-out and folded, figurative sculptures. These simple two-dimensional pieces opened a world of possibilities on how I would approach my own work.”
