Sanquhar Pottery Project : November Update
Clay from the clay-fields that served the former Sanquhar Brickworks drying in the greenhouse at MERZ. Samples of clay have been posted to Maggie Broadley to explore in glazing. Meanwhile Sara Kennedy is adding epsom salts to see if the clay she has received can be made more ‘plastic’. An auger has arrived to help secure clay from below the roots of plants. The clay-fields have become covered in vegetation since the brickworks closed in the 1960s.
