Circular Ceramics is a tableware collection made entirely from reclaimed industrial waste by-products, which minimise the consumption of finite raw materials and divert waste away from landfill. By building relationships between industries that consume the same raw materials as the ceramics industry, there is the opportunity for waste by-products from one manufacturer to replace the raw materials in another, forming an industrial symbiosis. The open source book ‘Circular Ceramics’ outlines all the methods of identifying, processing and substituting waste for all scales of ceramic production, from studio potter to mass manufacturer, which provides both ecological and financial gains.
