In this issue, we cover the careers of several working potters who have either transitioned into life as a working artist from another career or from school, apprenticeships, and internships within the last 10 years or so. Their paths are varied and provide insight into both the satisfaction and stress of making a living in clay. —Sherman Hall, Editor.

But there is, at the end of the day, a larger issue that we all have in common—like the weather—that influences how we approach ceramics, and that is how to find a way to ignore all of these details and just focus on our clay work and produce work that we are proud of and that represents us in the world—which, after all, is the start and end of all of this. We have this question in common, but the solutions are as different as each of us. One of the most encouraging signs I see that indicates people are able to address this concern is that we continue to see talented, dedicated people entering the field and making work that is personal, refined, and honest. Take a look through this year’s Emerging Artists (starting on page 45) and I think you’ll agree. For some of them, the answer is finding residencies that will allow them time and space to focus on their work, for some it’s making the most of whatever bits of time and space they can carve out at home. Regardless of the specifics, it’s clear that each of them has made a conscious choice to make clay a priority in their lives. —Sherman Hall, Editor.

Letter from the Editor April 2014

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.
