"Ceramics can be durable and last generations, but the production of ceramics is facing a future dilemma. The materials rely entirely on finite natural resources. Many of which when extracted, have significant ecological and societal impacts. Can the production of ceramics really be sustained?"
In the 2nd Edition of her "Circular Ceramics" book, Sara Howard answers this burning question with aplomb. Not only she believes the possibilities exist but she outlines and pinpoints the methods of reclaiming, processing and substituting waste materials for ceramic production in a so-called, "industrial symbiosis" whereby waste materials from one industry becomes the raw materials used in ceramic production, diverting waste away from landfill and minimising the consumption of virgin raw materials.
A must-read for aspiring ceramists and creatives, "Circular Ceramics" is an extract from Sara Howard's pioneering knowledge. By sharing it, the author aims to present valuable, also practical tool for those willing to become part of this collective journey towards a more sustainable living and better use of natural resources.
