stoneware from local material

Work worth doing
The whys and wherefores of using local material
"The machinery of industry cannot cope with variable raw materials so their innate vase.jpg character must be "refined" out. Twenty-five years ago I became frustrated with these materials and began quarrying and processing my own clay and minerals for glazes. All these materials are local (within a day's drive is how I define local). These clay's and rocks have their own unique character and that fact makes self-concious self-expression inappropiate and unnecessary. The many technical challenges arising from this pioneering approach have maintained my interest in and engagement with this process of making simple utensils. They are a completely local expression and that commitment to locality, in my opinion, is a necessary precondition of work that is worth doing".
