Original Ceramic Large Relief Wall Pieces

This series of sculptures that hang on the wall started in 1992 and has continued.  The relief wall pieces started because Kenney had been making plates for wall display for many years. 

A natural progression is to stretch his art away from 2-D (plates) into 3-D.  Organic form is an extension of nature whether it is plants or animals.  To mix a three dimensional organic form with geometric imagery successfully is a challenging proposition.  Kenney’s experience with ceramics and both design concepts has led to thought provoking series of original ceramic wall sculpture. 

All of the relief sculptures on this site are available for sale unless otherwise noted.

I am not here to discourage young ceramists from pursuing their dreams… My advice is to work hard and make at least 10 of each style, size or shape of your creations. Be as creative as possible within your kiln size. Try to leave some steps out of processes during art making to have more varied results. Use production techniques of working.

Arts & Crafts Statement by Douglas Kenney

The difference between art and craft is that art usually does not have a real function in people's lives other than it aesthetic beauty. Craft, on the other hand, has some function in a household. Functional pottery, tile, a vase all have uses. A painting or sculpture works on its aesthetics. Paintings and figurative work have traditionally been thought of as fine art. Also, if it hangs on a wall it can be referred to as art similar to a painting or drawing.

In my work, coming from western art training, I decided to use the wall as a place to display a lot of my work. In western architecture there is a vast quanity of open wall space in homes. From a marketing perspective, as an artist, I decided to compete with painting for this open wall space. Ceramic vessel and object makers always need a shelf or pedestal to display their work. Since the walls are so large, I make large pieces to fill this empty space.
