The Shift – sculptural vase. Combination of controlled shape and uncontrollable pattern.
The circle is a perfect shape, yet constricting in its infinite cyclicalness.
While searching for the way out of this constrictedness, I asked myself how to liberate the circle from its own vicious circle and what this will involve.

Raili Keiv is a ceramic designer who lives and works in Tallinn, Estonia.
She is intrigued by the possibilities included in both ceramics industry and small-scale studio work. She is fascinated by the perfection and efficiency of industry while admiring the errors that keep unintentionally appearing in small-scale pieces produced by hand in her studio. Raili Keiv is captived by the dialogue and conflict that emerges between in these two worlds.
The artist works mainly with porcelain and ceramics while often combining these with other materials. She experiments with the boundaries of these materials, yet adhering to the functional aspects of objects such as tableware. She makes conceptual series of works, often continuing with the patterns that she has used in her previous pieces.
Often the ordinary and visible present becomes vague and forgotten. Analogue experiences have boiled down to a minimum during the last years. We are currently in a situation where much of our regular rhythm was interrupted, the everyday was frozen and almost disappeared for a while. It became particularly evident how the environment we are functioning in, what we have or possess, matters. Layers of the past provide a means to describe the world and rethink the evident. Remembering and untangling the past and the local provides a captivating perspective through types of objects, materials, and methods of making.
The Estonian collection, “Revisiting the Past”, is based on tracking the everyday and the conventional, translating observations, reconsiderations, and hints of the past into contemporary design. More than ever, the future is about rethinking the present and the past, of what we have and need. The past is heavily coded in our future.
