Overview

Hooray for clay! Projects that put clay and ceramics centre stage are invaluable - be it in architecture, public sculpture, cups and saucers on your breakfast table, passing on an understanding of the material is invaluable. Clayground Collective are true clay ambassadors. Their extraordinary work is exemplary.~Kate Malone, Ceramic Artist; Judge, BBCTV Great Pottery Throw DownThis is not a "how to" book but a "Can you?" book. There is a real passion to discover though materials. This book challenges those with specialist skills to engage the public in that discovery and provides a route to get started.~Amanda Bright, Head of School of Art, U. of BrightonIf you're a practitioner setting out to work with schools and the public where do you go for advice? Clay in Common is a great starting point.~Steve Moffitt, Chief Executive, A New Direction As clay and ceramic courses decline in schools, craft and hand skills risk being lost. Clay in Common makes a strong case for the vital role of clay in schools and wider society. For teachers, parents, school governors, artist-facilitators and education policy-makers, the book has detailed case studies with ideas for projects and activities that can bridge school and community life.
