Producing work that is not only beautifully designed and produced, but is also environmentally friendly and socially responsible is now more important than ever. In Sustainable Ceramics, pioneer Robert Harrison draws on more than four decades of making, and a wealth of experience shared by other artists to present you with a range of practical possibilities.
This book presents you all the factors to consider when going 'green', from fuels and alternative firing technology to energy-saving methods, sustainable ways to collect and use clay itself, and ways to deal with or recycle your waste materials and save water. He suggests simple and achievable methods by which to reduce the carbon footprint of your ceramic art, and draws on interviews and examples by practitioners who reclaim, reuse and recycle in their studio or work.
