The Itinerant Factory

In 2017, we travelled to New York for a commission at A/D/O in Brooklyn. We set up a mobile factory line, centred around a semi-industrial clay extruder.

Working in residence alongside Assemble, Will Shannon, Niamh Riordan and Mollie Anna King, over 2 months we created a range of experimental, extruded products to complete the building around us. A cladding of ceramic tiles was made for the facade, alongside planters, dinnerware and door handles. The products were made from a heavily grogged stoneware clay, dipped in a colourful blue slip.
