Remnant Works

About this project

A collaboration with arts-based researcher and ceramicist, Emma Bowen to explore the relationship between our making practices and circular design thinking.  This first project sees off-cut fabrics from Sabine Lettman’s otherways[project] garments combined with wild-clay, processed and fired at Moor Green Allotments, Birmingham.  Having fulfilled an artistic purpose, the work will be placed back into the environment to observe the ‘end of life’ stage of a circular design process.
