Let’s Have a Discussion: Sustainability in the Ceramic Studio

Posted On June 28, 2010 18 Comments

There is growing recognition of the need to align our studio practice with an awareness of environmental sustainability. Individuals and groups are already engaging with green issues in studio ceramics and are devising, enacting, and posting solutions. The National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) Green Task Force has been working for the past two years towards oversight of practical stewardship at the annual conference and to assist in the overall exchange of ideas and information that minimize the global impact of our field.

Focus: Education

In ceramics, education is about the biggest can of worms there is. It can be difficult to define it in a way that includes all of its various wriggling parts. Add to that the fact that we all have widely varying experiences when learning about ceramics, and the discussion can sometimes stall before it even starts—but I always try to power on through to some sort of common ground; call me an optimist. So, in this issue we will talk about community education through a ceramic lending library, as well as various kinds of green research at post-secondary ceramic programs. Comprehensive? No—but we think it’s a good sample of some new thing happening in ceramic education today.
