Bauxite Residue

Bauxite Residue, a.k.a. Red Mud, is a byproduct residue of the alumina industry. More than two parts of red mud are produced for every part of aluminum. This means that over 150 million tonnes are produced each year, and left unused in giant pits. This project questions our notion of ‘waste’, and shows the value of secondary materials in a world of finite resources. Working with factories and research labs, the industrial residue is transformed into ceramic bodies and glazes.
