Keith Day Pearce Murray was born in New Zealand but came to England when he was 14. He qualified as an architect but turned his hand to illustrating before becoming a full time designer. He worked on a freelance basis for the glass makers Steven & Williams and then for Wedgwood pottery and his designs in metal were created for Mappin & Webb. In 1936 he was appointed architect in charge of designing Wedgwood's new factory in Burlaston and he returned to architecture after the war.
