New Zealand ceramics designer Keith Murray originally trained as an architect in London in 1919. Due to low work levels he went on to become a magazine illustrator. After an attempt to become involved in glass design he found his niche as a ceramics designer in 1932 when he designed for Stevens & Williams. Keith Murray’s talent was recognised by Josiah Wedgwood as he assisted Tom Wedgwood by producing a range of teaware and dinnerware called ‘Annular’. Keith Murray’s works are recognised by their plain design and often ribbed form.
