Jaime Keiter is an artist working primarily in the medium of ceramics. She graduated with a BFA from the University of Georgia in 2001 and worked as a photo art director at various fashion and design magazines in New York City for 14 years before returning to Atlanta in 2016. Her ceramic sculptures are collaged from individually handcrafted and glazed porcelain tiles. Her process begins with cutting geometric and organic shapes from porcelain slabs, underglazing patterns and textures, and then finishing each tile with a variety of different mid-fire glazes including copper washes, turquoise, creamy pastels, and bold primaries. These elements are then collaged together to create the sculptures. The works are inspired by the Bauhaus art of 1920’s Pre-War Germany and the Postmodern Memphis design movement of the 1980’s. She is interested in the intersection both of these movements have between fine art and craft that combine to make functional and non-functional design objects. She has exhibited with Daily Operation in Brooklyn, New York as well as Swan Coach House in Atlanta. Her art has been featured in various publications including Sight Unseen, Design Milk, and Architectural Digest.
