Exploring ways to give waste ceramics meaning and value.
'For real sustainability, we must look to ceramics'
(Miodownik, Stuff Matters, 2014, p.203)
On the Sustainable Design MA, I have been exploring using waste from the ceramics industry.
Experimenting with different possibilities in the construction and technique to create new pieces, this project explores how meaning and value can be contained within objects and explores how to add this or design it into the building of new and sustainable objects and heirlooms.
Using only waste materials from ceramic and pottery workshops, all the work made is 100% recycled, no virgin materials have been used at all.
My first degree specialised in ceramics and since then I have been employed as a ceramics technician, as well as bringing up children and growing vegetables on an allotment.
Thank you for taking the time to look at the images of the work I have made for the Sustainable Design MA course.
