Raili Keiv studied ceramics and product design in Estonian Academy of Arts, Germany and Denmark. “The materials I use are both the substance of and inspiration for my design. The perfectibility and possibilities of porcelain has been my subject for many years.
I have been experimenting with the boundaries of porcelain. Nevertheless I have stayed on the more-or-less functional aspects of the objects, which are often associated with the theme of tableware.”
