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.

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.
