The Clay Counter
The Clay Counter, Barras Market, Glasgow
(May – July 2019)
The unit, at the Barras Market in Glasgow, was open every weekend from 9-3. Initially, it was set-up as a workshop for making objects from around the market, to question value, function and authenticity. It became a place for exchange, community, trying to make ends meet, what does it mean to make a livelihood as an artist? Discussion, support, ideas. What is the future of the market? What are the trader's stories? I gathered them like old receipts, clinging on.
