It’s all just stuff from below our feet.

*I borrowed this quote from one of my favourite ceramicists, Florian Gadsby, who wrote:

“Clay as a substance is nothing but a composite of stone, eroded over millions of years, weathered slowly into rocks, dust and then clay. When fired, this journey its been taking is reversed.

It’s one of the aspects I find some enthralling, yes there are synthetic materials used in the ceramic industry nowadays, but even not that long ago it was all processed with natural resources and methods. It’s all just stuff from below our feet.”
