This project aims to raise awareness to the importance of making good use of our resources and taking our projects a step towards sustainability.
first I went on a road trip to the old site of Jordan mining company - Fuhais/Mahis and collected Grade 1 Kaolin, I soak the sample in water to wash over the salt and leave soil to settle so when water comes up to the top I pour it away, I did this for 3 times then used a ceramic ball mill machine to mix the watery mud, let it dry on a fabric then it is ready to be used.
This clay is from Jerash
