The Seaside Ceramics Project

About This Project

The Seaside Ceramics project was geared towards sustainable development in Thanet. The project drew on the skills of artists and local beachcomber knowledge to create a ceramics collection that could be produced in the kilns of the local FE college and sold by local businesses.

Inspired by the shells and ceramic shards that wash up on beaches and the culture of souvenirs that have long been a staple of coastal towns, this project successfully showcased artists’ work, celebrated the towns in which they were sold, and contributed to the tourism economy relied upon for many businesses in the area
