Sectional Round Pieces - Ready To Hang

This series of work started as a result of a commission Kenney did for a client in Honolulu in 2004. The idea is to retain the visual power of large round plate shape. To achieve a 48” diameter round shape the piece has to be divided into sections in order to fit in the kiln. Each section has holes or lugs in the back for a cable to feed through for hanging. Since each section needs at least two points for hanging, a cardboard template designating where the holes in the wall need to be for installation comes with each work.

This speeds the wall mounting process with fewer holes in the wall and to make all the sections fit together in a cohesive design. All of these works are for sale unless otherwise noted.

In Hawaii nature is a visceral force. The sky and ocean are vivid shades of blue, as is my house. Botanical gardens, brilliant fiery flowers, textured palm fronds, all make their way into my work either through imprinting or interpretation.

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.
