CENTRE SPACE GALLERY (POT BANK)
Elenora St, Stoke-on-Trent ST4 1QQ
Keith has made 1100 beakers, one for every one of the workforce when the site was at its busiest, and a smaller one for every child working on the site. He remembered their hands as he shaped the beakers that holds their memory. Each beaker has been handmade by Keith in his Kentish studio, decorated with transfers printed in Stoke, and then brought here to fill this space in one of the old Spode mould rooms.
In this new installation, running alongside the British Ceramics Biennial, Keith has filled this place with memory and made the ghosts of this place solid.
