urbed won a competition to create a new future for the former Spode pottery in Stoke Town. My work went from working up a wider masterplan with quite complex levels and the West Coast Main Line in the middle of it, through producing and negotiating a specification to bring one of the production halls back into use for the British Ceramics Biennial to designing and building a 30mm long exhibition stand for them; in the time between recording the demise of one the greats of British porcelain.
