More and more, artists are interested in producing work that’s not only beautifully designed and produced, but also environmentally friendly and socially responsible.

This book covers 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 waste materials and save water. Harrison suggests simple and achievable methods by which to reduce the carbon footprint of ceramic art, and offers examples throughout of potters and clay artists who reclaim, reuse and recycle in their work. Sustainable Ceramics is an essential resource for any ceramicist, studio or school wishing to reduce the impact of their practice on the environment.
