He is interested in the role of ceramics within the practice of design and art concentrating on the development of new public audiences and spaces for contemporary ceramics. Central to his current research is the exploration of the concept of public craft. MacDonald’s current work explores site-specific firing and new techniques for glaze applications to architecture.
