The practice of ceramics and book binding are both rooted in ancient methods. The book, as an object, is a container for life’s meanings; a way to record, learn and remember. Ceramics have long been used for the safe storage of sustenance and have fulfilled spiritual purposes. Both are functional objects that serve to feed us in different ways. The Stone Diary Project connects one book binder with sixteen Manitoba ceramic artists to create stone vessels in which to store your thoughts and ideas. Precious and safe, yet ultimately fragile, these objects are meant to invoke connection and foster a sense of contemplation.
