Restaurant Waste Glaze

Ash has been used to glaze ceramics for centuries, but in today's society tonnes of waste ash are sent to landfill each year. To make use of this valuable yet overlooked resource, I collected ash from the coal powered ovens at Tom Dixon's Coal Office restaurant in King's Cross and used it to develop recycled waste glazes. 

These glazes are not only better for the planet by reducing the need for mined ceramic materials, but by also following a cyclical model of material collection and repurposing, the plates take on a true sense of belonging in the space - they are made from the products of their final resting place.
