Delivered as part of a symposium at the former Spode factory in Stoke on Trent which seeks to explore creative synergies between ceramic practice and archaeology, this presentation discussed how art-archaeological methodologies have been used to investigate the recent past of the ceramic novelty figurine industry in Seto, Japan. This project aims to raise awareness of this threatened heritage resource through ceramic art practice, placing it within the wider context of considerations of placemaking and the preservation of skill and material cultures of making.
