I have been spending time on a residency at a brickworks, working with artist Nina Gerada. We've been learning about raw materials, processes and their beautiful bricks. All their bricks are made by hand and they have been sharing their skills and knowledge with us. We have been researching the processes and the clay, developing ideas and learning. This has been an opportunity to spotlight and celebrate bricks, brickmaking and bricklaying and support the handmade brick industry by shining a light on a declining industry.
