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.

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.

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.

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

Now, to be honest, it’s wonderful for a magazine (particularly this magazine) to have been around that long, but there is… Read More »

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

We received in our office the other day a teapot from Christa Assad. Because she likes us and decided to send us a gift? Well, no—I mean she likes us, I think, but mostly she sent it because we purchased it as part of the Ceramic Artist of the Year award. If you missed that… Read More »
