What would I make? Exactly what I’m making. I’ve made my choices, and the work I make is the result of those choices. I think this is true for all of us, whether we’re in full-time production or making one-offs on a very part-time schedule.

I think we may see as much development in studio ceramics in the next 10 years as we’ve seen in the last 60, and that is more exciting than it is daunting, more hopeful than it is ominous. And for us, at the end of the day, it’s really still just the basic material of mud in our hands that inspires us to create—which is why it’s worth exploring for another 60 years. —Sherman Hall, Editor

So, as we move forward through the gauntlet of digital content delivery, print delivery, studio work, social-media planning, website building and maintenance, and all the other various and sundry “opportunities” out there, it’s nice to be able to kick back once in a while with a nice pot of tea and appreciate the real reason for all of our publishing celebrations, regardless of medium or form factor—objects made of clay that bring joy into our lives. —Sherman Hall, Editor

In this issue, we’ve asked several makers to describe not only their process for making one of their functional pieces, but the value they hope their work carries that is beyond its basic function—and we hope you value their efforts as much as we do.—Sherman Hall, Editor

Whether you’re already thinking about 2013 and are busy making plans, or you’re comfortable cruising along in 2012, content to deal with the next year when it gets here, my suggestion is that you take some time to assess and plan and refine what you want at this wonderful point where things are still malleable and full of possibilities. —Sherman Hall, Editor

So, whether your baby step is taken with a circle-cutting band-saw jig and some scrap counter top, or it’s an actual step through a gallery door, take it with confidence—with the knowledge that it only feels awkward because it’s your first, and that it will teach you something, and that it will get easier very soon. Bigger steps are right around the corner.
