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 captivated by the dialogue and conflict that emerges between 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.
