What about the environment?

Human history is recorded in ceramics through which it brings cultural capital and richness to our lives like no other material. However, it also contributes to environmental degradation through mining, firing and waste. At SCC we ask our students to join our journey to become mindful of the effects of our activities.

We recycle all our clay and encourage active selection of only the best pieces to offer to the kiln! Reflection, critical discourse/analysis with teachers is really helpful in this goal!

We know ceramics takes a long time to learn, particularly the wheel which requires many, many hours of practice, just like learning a musical instrument. For this reason we provide unlimited clay and we recycle all our waste. But this does not mean we fire everything a student makes. We will always encourage you to select the best for your stage of development.
