Gavin Keightley

Gavin is a Designer-Maker with a passion for process led design. His enthusiasm for making stems from a strong belief in developing manual skills, and investigating unexplored and undervalued methods to reveal new and innovative results.

Each project begins with a lengthy experimental phase, in which he investigates the boundaries of a core process alongside material explorations, with no preconceptions of what may flourish from this experimentation. This often leads to the discovery of unusual and unparalleled techniques.

As the materials and processes begin to combine and create forms, Gavin begins to construct a body of work that celebrates the story of making. The outcomes spark intrigue and encourage an understanding for the importance of hand-made design.
