Keeper Nott

BIO
Keeper Nott was born in Alaska's Interior and schooled in Anchorage, where he still maintains his residence. He applied to Alfred University at age 16 (already an accomplished ceramacist) and graduated Alfred with a BFA in sculptural studies. He has worked in the Pacific Northwest as well as in New England, and his work can be seen from Artique Ltd. in his home town, clear across the country to catalogs such as that of the National Museum of Liberty.

Keeper's work reflects both the lightness and intricacy of classical Italian techniques and the bold forms and weight of Scandanavian traditions, combined with his eye for color and his authentic Northern aesthetic. The work revels in primary and secondary colors, evolving from a palette of the densest, brightest, and most expressive complimentary and contrasting colors, painting with light. In addition to many classic techniques, the use of cane moire creates a feast for the eye that extends far beyond the glass itself.

Whether intricate cane work or crystal simplicity, Keeper continues to explore the past and future of glass, from the anatomical to the astronomical, from classical technique and design to the future of Art in Alaska for the 21st Century.
