I’ve been revisiting and developing my keywords.

I think the main objective at the moment for achieving in the studio is a critical regional method of making ceramics.

Critical regionalism is a movement originating in architecture out of a frustration of the international style of architecture and the onsuing mass produced architecture and housing especially found in the UK that produces many problems including the phenomenology related problem of placelessness that is one of my areas of interest.

kenneth frampton in an essay named Towards a Critical Regionalism written In 1983 outlines 6 points for architectural resistance.


My my question at the moment is how can I harness contemporary methods of making and at the same time creating ceramics that communicates a critical regional awareness and representation of place.
