As I hauled the big box out of the basement and loaded it into my car to take to the UPS store, I had a hard time remembering what specific pots I had packed into it. It had been months since I packed it, right after I found out my youngest sister was getting married…. Read More »

So this is our “back to work” issue. For many, it’s the “back to school” issue, and for that reason, we use it to showcase undergraduate work, as well as review the NCECA “National Student Juried Exhibition.” And in the spirit of traditional as well as nontraditional education, we posed a question to Mark Shapiro, one of our editorial advisory board members: “What is one of the things (advice, technique, philosophy) you’ve learned from a mentor or instructor that has been surprisingly invaluable?” You can check out his answer on the last page of this issue.—Sherman Hall, Editor

Things have changed, as they always tend to do. Once upon a time, this would have been the issue in which I would be writing about all the upcoming fairs and festivals, where the bulk of most professional clay folks’ income was generated.

Once a year, the editorial staff spends a few days looking through all of the submissions for our annual Emerging Artist feature. We each pull out the entries we want to consider, put them all together in a group, and start discussing the specific and relative merits of each. After several rounds of this, we… Read More »

We are reminded that there is a lot of very good work being made by folks just coming into their own, and we always end up with a renewed sense of excitement and anticipation about what studio ceramics will have in store for us in the coming year. It’s not that we don’t pay attention to those who are “emerging” throughout the year, but it’s nice to see so many all at once.

We all wear many hats (or jackets, or aprons, as the case may be), and I think the primary concern for me is not so much the size of your pottery hat, but simply that you have one.
