This chapter discusses how a clay workshop can be used as an inquiry
method in the knowledge management context. We focus on
transdisciplinarity as an essential part of the knowledge creation
process and clay workshop as an artistic approach for enabling knowledge
production that takes place in collaboration among different
disciplines. We demonstrate empirically how a series of clay workshops
enabled individuals to recognise their personal tacit knowledge and how
it supported knowledge creation in a work context. The study contributes
to the literature on the interface of knowledge management, and the
arts from a practitioner perspective, the study provides guidelines on
how embodied methods, such as, for example, clay crafting, can be used
for making sense and surfacing tacit knowledge.
