Our cover this month by Gordon Keith. Building “in the round” is a term loosely used by the ceramist—and even more so by author J. Sheldon Carey. See page 12.

Our cover this month amplifies the theme of Dorothy Perkins’ article (page 14): that nature suggests free forms. You won’t find leaves, stones, or flower petals—as such—in the asymmetric pot. They’re there in essence only.
Our cover is a variation on a timeless theme, “The Old and New.” Adelaide Robineau’s porcelain Scarab Vase with its intricate incised decoration (right) which won an international prize in 1911 contrasts with a contemporary prize winner from the 17th Ceramic National. The stoneware bottle is by Theodore Randall. This trend toward earthy surfaces and muted colors is discussed by Daniel Rhodes on page 11; the Cover Story on Mrs. Robineau will be found on page 12.
