Listing Details

Keith Murray was one of the most influential designers of ceramics in the inter-war years in Britain. A New Zealander by birth, his family moved back to England when he was 14. There he trained as an architect but the lack of work in that field in the 1920's forced him to consider an alternative career.

He designed glass in what has been described as the Swedish style for the Midlands firm Stevens & Williams. In 1932 he was approached by Josiah Wedgwood to visit the Wedgwood ceramic factory  Here he worked as a freelance designer until the outbreak of the second World War.

Most of his work was with vases, bowls and similar cylindrical ware, executed in a clean and restrained style with decoration often limited to deeply incised lines or smooth steps in the shape. The whole piece is usually one colour without applied decoration. Every piece bore his signature above the Wedgwood mark.

In recent years his elegant minimalist Art Deco designs have accords with current interior tastes making him avidly collected internationally.
