Letter from the Editor April 2014

Posted On March 10, 2014 0 Comments

In putting our last issue together, focused on Masters in Clay, and receiving great feedback and suggestions from you about your influences and those who you feel deserve coverage of a similar type, I began reflecting more intentionally on what really influences me in the studio. What came from that was an understanding that it’s individuals as much as their work that provide inspiration, information, and understanding. Some of those represented here occupy a place in my life only through their work; others have had direct personal impact (and honestly, their work means more to me because of it). Regardless of that, all 10 of these cups play some significant part in my daily life. So this little game is meant to be interesting and fun, but it’s also intended as a way to connect my influences to you, through me and my work. Plus, I need a reason to get back in the studio and make some cups! And I hope that, as you sit in your studio making cups (or whatever you’re making), you create some mental space to focus on your own influences and those individuals who helped bring you to where you are now. Enjoy! —Sherman Hall, editor.

But in this issue, we’re introducing a new, once-in-a-while article format that focuses on those who have considerable legacies in our field, and discusses the impact of those legacies directly. In no particular order, and by no particular ranking, we are including Warren MacKenzie, John Mason, and Karen Karnes in this (let’s call it the kick off) issue. There are many individuals who we could, and will, be covering from this perspective, and we are of course open to your suggestions for who some of those folks might be. – Sherman Hall, editor.
