Let's Stay in Touch

Dr. Rosette Gault is available for private consultation.
In some cases just a book or internet hearsay is not enough. In some regions the traditional ceramics approach and the "old rules" is what the teachers offer learners. Some teachers of ceramics teach only the traditions they learned
To get the advantages of paperclay over traditional clay, a very high percentage (80-90%) of traditional methods were expanded or changed in some way as has been illustrated and explained in my books.
If you have a special project or are researching paperclay consider how a special session might save you lots of time and money as you advance in your career.
Workshops or masterclasses later in the year will be announced.
Innovation in Ceramic Paperclay
This Ph.D academic document based on existing creative and published work surveys influence of Dr. Gault's research and innovation, art and teaching on development field of paperclay ceramics particularly since the 1970's. A high proportion of the full spectrum of technical innovation in the 2013 book is cited traced back to her first public teaching in 1991 and work prior.
This 130 page document is available on pdf by request for a donation to cover costs of its preparation.
Integrated Technologies for Sustainable Materials Research in Application beyond art.
What low cost medicines will be accessible to us created in and delivered by nano porous forms of paperclay? While the practical time and money saving advantages of paperclay are being used by artists, engineers and materials scientists are taking interest in researching and isolating specific compounds for filtration and other use. Change and exchange can take place at molecular level deep inside paperclay at the nano scale interface between cellulose fibre and clay minerals there. Research explained in my thesis shows ways the interior architecture of paperclay can be regulated to maximize benefit.

Water: Ripple EffectsThe Water Tap: A Water Distribution Camp - SMUApril 2013: Dallas, Texas, I presented hands on design for village handbuilt paperclay water filter design at SMU Southern Methodist University, Dallas Engineering and Humanity Week April 6-11, 2013. I am expeciallly grateful for assistance by Laura Seipp, Allison Michelle Leopold, SMU Ceramics, Malcom Morris and Millenium Water Alliance, Jessie Zarazaga and all at the Hunt Institute of Engineering and Humanity who faciliated the project http://eandhweek.org/the-water-tap/
