MATERIAL PROVENANCE 

About the Project


︎ Link to form to submit your research! 

A global open-source material research project created by the members of Clay Matters.  We see this work as building upon the efforts of The Potter's Pledge, which acknowledged that “our active choice to work with clay carries with it a responsibility to respect the earth’s finite resources by identifying where materials are sourced, how they are packaged, transported and processed.”

The Material Provenance project is an effort to builda broader shared knowledge about our palette of glaze & clay materials.. We invite you to call your suppliers, go to the library, and talk to mining experts

By building this communal knowledge system we empower each other with a broader understanding of the environmental impact of our work, the processes used to extract our mineral materials, and the labor required to make them ready for ceramic applications. To learn more about the permaculture framework that we're using to question our materials, click here.

Thank you for your help!
