Ceramics + Glass Dept.



This is in ongoing personal project looking at waste in the Ceramics + Glass department at the Royal College of Art.

The pictures below show my journey through the project so far.



A quick summary of the design process:
  • Interviewed students, technicians, tutors and Head of Programme to understand the programme and where it’s heading
  • Got tours of all the studios and workshops
  • Key insights were on the sustainability of the programme: its energy intensity, resource useage and waste.
  • Focus on waste – aim of repurposing waste streams into something new, as an example that would inspire more sustainable practices in the department.
  • More visits to investigate waste streams and learn more about the materials.
  • Chose specific waste streams to focus on.
  • Experiment!
