Letter from the Editor February 2015

Posted On January 13, 2015 0 Comments

Through my work at Ceramics Monthly, I also have the privilege of talking to and corresponding with a number of artists who have built significant legacies in the field of studio ceramics. We started covering some of these artists in a deliberate way in our March 2014 issue, and have included several articles on masters in the field in subsequent issues over the past year. In this issue we continue that focus as we talk to Robert Briscoe about life as a potter in our Spotlight department, and feature the work of Cary Esser, Cathi Jefferson, and Linda Sikora. Each of these artists have impressive careers as studio artists, teachers, and mentors, and share practical studio tips, recipes, and techniques with us.

Sam Chung’s Wheel Throwing and Altering Process

Posted On October 20, 2014 5 Comments

When Sam Chung stumbled across a book of Korean Cloud motifs, he decided to explore pairing them with traditional Korean pottery forms, and his cloud series was born.

 

In today’s post, an excerpt from the November 2014 issue of Ceramics Monthly, Sam shares his wheel throwing and altering process, which results in pots that look like they are peering out from behind puffy clouds.- Jennifer Harnetty, editor.

 

PS. Check out the November 2014 issue of Ceramics Monthly to see Sam’s China Painting process, as well as his liner glaze recipe.
