Grog is an aggregate that is added to clay to improve its stability and drying properties. Currently, resource intensive processes are used by industry to create virgin grog from finite materials such as silica sand. 

This project has explored utilising various types of ceramic waste as grog instead, revealing the rich variety of colour and texture that can be achieved when using recycled material. This is showcased in the Grog Side Table, which is coloured differently on each side through the addition of an individual type of waste – from the white of bone china seconds to the brown of demolished bricks.
