Next steps

I’m just preparing to get started with new work. It’s an interesting time, because I want to develop two strands; one focused on my investigations of place linked to landscape / environment and the way that clay and ceramics fit with the local economy (bakeries, dairying, brick / tile works, places to eat and drink… etc.). as well as at a domestic scale, with a second strand focusing on making functional forms – particularly those linked to making bread and serving food and drink.

The big challenge is sourcing material and processing it in any meaningful amount – hence the need to think about the two strands….. I’ll be heading out to talk to farmers and quarries again soon – but also I’ll be heading back to Stoke to talk with some of the clay manufactures to see what fits best with my commitment to source clay that is as local to me or to the project I am working on as possible.
