Rob Kesseler’s work is difficult to pin down. He is Professor of Ceramic Art and Design at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design but is very far from being a conventional potter, often working with photography and digital images rather than clay. His work bridges the art-science divide and he calls himself an artist, explaining that ‘I work in the area where craft, art and design overlap’. But the one theme linking Kesseler’s wide-ranging body of work is his overwhelming fascination with plant material and the natural world.
Rob will be speaking at The Making's 'Inspired by Nature - Theatre of Making' seminar at West Dean in June 2007. . Visit Rob's website.
