The Stone Diary Project II  is a collaborative venture connecting  artists across media to create unique ceramic books.

The practice of ceramics and bookbinding are both rooted in ancient methods.  The book is a container for thoughts, ideas, memories, emotions.  Likewise, ceramics are containers too – vessels that have long been used for safe storage of sustenance.  Both book and ceramic are functional objects that frequently serve in sacred ways.

Precious and safe yet ultimately fragile, these objects are meant to foster a sense of contemplation.

“There are chapters in every life which are seldom read, and certainly not aloud.”

Carol Shields, The Stone Diaries
