Original Wheel Thrown Ceramic Vases

Kenney was introduced to ceramics and the potter’s wheel in 1980. During college he increased his skills by throwing large vessels on the wheel. As a ceramics instructor at San Antonio College (1989-1995) in Texas, he taught wheel throwing and handbuilding.

His current wheel thrown vessels surface decoration is made from colored underglazes. Some pieces have fired overglazes and metallic lusters in a final firing. The vases on this site are for sale unless otherwise noted.

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.

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.
