I chose London brick as it is part of the industrial heritage.  I combined history with material investigation i.e. slip integrated with jelly or PVA glue representing the future. Each piece was a discovery, driven by material experimentation. For me revealing the possibilities of the medium I use, through making and experimentation is incredibly important. 
 
This piece has 3 sides to it, glass, sagging ceramic and a broken side where the inside is exposed. 
The nature of clay is imperfect and is juxtaposed with clean cut glass. Both contrast and complement each other.
This is my first object combining glass and brick clay. 
I wanted to juxtapose industrial materials and this combination is often unnoticed. To show that both materials have different qualities I disturbed the surface of the brick, complementing the flat surface of the glass.
