Elemental/ Earth

Material Design Process

Humans have been fashioning art and tools from earth for at
least 25,000 years.
Despite the age of this relationship, continuing
technological developments mean we are still coming up
with new ways of shaping clay, stone and soil.

Elemental/Earth is a deep-dive into the latest in earth-based
making, from composite stonework to 3D-printed ceramics.
Profiles of artists renowned for their work with earthen materials
explore the frontier where inspiration, skill and technology
meet. Whether working with new technologies or bare hands
and clay, these artisans push the boundaries of stone and soil,
creating truly unique, inspiring new forms, never losing sight of
the ancient relationship our species shares with the materials.

The first in a new series of books exploring elemental materials,
Elemental/Earth presents a bold picture of the present and
future of handmade earthenware.
