Seeking to create work that is meant to be touched, Keri sculpts her clay rattles on an intimate scale, burnishing them with river stone to achieve an inviting texture. The Twin Cities artist produces these works, using both hand building and slip cast techniques and low fire clay, then fires them in an open pit with organic materials.
Keri is a graduate of the College of Visual Arts in St. Paul, MN. She has worked at MuPerforming Arts and Northern Clay Center in Minneapolis and at the archives of the Minnesota State Fair in St. Paul. Her work has been featured in the volumes 500 Tiles and 500 Animals in Clay.
