Letter from the Editor April 2015

We all have clay in common. We find it at different times, sometimes early on, sometimes as a second career, and sometimes as our retirement gig. I have found that artists whose work most intrigues me often have very focused interests outside of the clay world, and sometimes outside of the world of visual art all together, whether it’s birdwatching, botany, machines, gourmet cooking, physics, or the science of nostalgia.

We all have clay in common. We find it at different times, sometimes early on, sometimes as a second career, and sometimes as our retirement gig. I have found that artists whose work most intrigues me often have very focused interests outside of the clay world, and sometimes outside of the world of visual art all together, whether it’s birdwatching, botany, machines, gourmet cooking, physics, or the science of nostalgia. The artists in this issue all have different reasons for making a career switch at some point in their lives, and deciding to leave one field, follow their curiosity, and pick up a ball of clay to start their new career. We talk to them about their choices, and how their former careers have influenced their studio work. After all, while we all research personal interest areas and bring these influences to the studio when making work, when you’ve been immersed in a particular field or subject area through study, training, and work experience, it tends to not only form your knowledge base, but also to have a profound effect on who you are and the way you think.
