Xanthe is a ceramic artist from South London.

Watch Xanthe’s video to find more about their In:Site commission and read an extract from the blog below.

Xanthe went to the University of Brighton, graduating in 3D Design and Craft, Ceramics. Xanthe went especially to the Lickey Hills to dig local clay to use at In:Site festival. On a large map of the city centre of Birmingham, the public were invited to use the local clay to create personal objects relating to their experiences of living, or visiting, the city of Birmingham.

There were representations of books, food, cars as well as office buildings, architecture and even a cat!
