It was sad to hear the news that Keith Blight passed away earlier this month. He was a very active ASP member for many years and exhibited regularly in our shows and national exhibitions as well.
Stylistically he was his own person, preferring slab work, with pieces up to a metre tall and often decorated with a palette of bright vivid colours. They were extremely well made, meticulously finished and many will be out there in Aucklanders' hallways and sitting rooms as feature pieces, commanding attention. He was helpful and generous with his teaching and advice and ASP fund-raising auctions.
He has not been around the ASP for a while but we need to acknowledge his input to our society over many decades. Our sympathy and best wishes go to his wife Nancy and his family.
