I would like to publicly and fully extend such a heartfelt expression of gratitude to the whole Taylor Clay Team!!! We had such a legendary day making bricks in preparation for the upcoming Old Marshall Jail Brick Project. I’m totally and completely in love with this place and the people who make it so special. I feel so extremely fortunate to have all of you in my life and am constantly in amazement of your generosity towards so many people in this world. Thanks for making it a better place one brick at a time.
With @thingsonshelves

Another image from the Taylor Clay brick company. Extruding dies for different brick shapes sitting in a pile in the mechanical room. It’s very interesting to see what impacts me when I visit these places and how those “sources” find their way into my work. It’s often not in the way I planned or expected. When I first started going down to the brick plants I thought what I was “getting” was the clay… Which does happen, but the things that I didn’t expect to get, and the things might end up mattering most in the long run are theses moments, the memories of dust covered tools unused in who knows how long. This image rocks me to the core… It’s hard to say why, and I don’t really need to know, all that matters is the feeling. #sources #sourceinspiration #taylorclay #bricktour #brickmaking #apotterslife #adventure #community
