At the height of the Potteries industry, the Stoke on Trent skyline was once dominated by 2000 bottle kilns. Now less than 50 remain. When I started this photography project in October 2017, I wanted show that the remaining kilns are still very much part of the Potteries landscape. To document them all in their current surroundings and the way in which they interact with Stoke on Trent’s modern landscape.
