Keith Sheppard - The 'Scandza' Collection
The Market Place Theatre & Arts Centre, Armagh
One of Ireland’s emerging kiln formed glass Artists, Keith’s focus is on the fine arts and the architectural and sculptural potential of kiln formed glass. Keith’s new works explore more advanced and complex techniques of design, composition and colour theory, examining the relationship between glass and natural light and its artistic presentation to optimum display.
Keith presents his new body of work, The ‘Scandza’ Collection which embraces his aesthetic vision and continued development, focusing on a sleek contemporary; ‘minimalist’ approach to functional and non-functional tableware for modern living.
'I am extremely excited with recent developments, particularly with my new ‘Scandza’ Collection. My goal is not only to make work that is certainly possible to be used functionally but also to cross the boundary of function to that of a work of art.'
