About Rockcote's Return to the Traditional

In line with our vision of being a fully sustainable & regenerative company we are actively persuing, promoting & supporting efforts to increase our understanding & use of sustainable building materials.

We believe that in the future our building materials will be sourced from commonly available materials, i.e. clay, sand, stone, reclaimed & recycled products as well as materials gained from biomass i.e. straw,hemp hurd & timber from renewable sources.

Our Modern World

Most of the problems we face today emanate from the difference between the way nature works & the way humans think. Although our march towards civilization has brought many benefits there are also some very important things that we have lost, many of these just in the last generation. These are things that helped us live as part of a community in tune with the rhythm's of nature have evolved in our traditional cultures for thousands of years & are now in danger of being lost forever.

These include:

  • How to grow our food with out huge inputs of fossil fuel energy & chemical fertilizers.
  • How to process, store & prepare our food without the use of modern chemical additives.
  • How to design our communities so that we are not reliant on the automobile & so that they do function as true nurturing communities for all age & ethnic groups.
  • How to design & build our buildings so that they don't rely on huge amounts of fossil fuels to make them livable & comfortable.

Within the time of just one generation we are in danger of losing these traditional arts & skills forever.

What to do about it? Of course you can follow the path of many alternate life stylers & simply drop out, but while this method may have some benefits, it is probably not a practical solution for the modern world.

When dealing with a systemic problem, to find a long term solution requires a different approach than we often employ these days.

We hope that through this site, and pizza ovens we can show rewarding and beneficial the traditional arts are and there by keep them alive.
