Being the editor of Ceramics Monthly has become a significant part of my personal identity, and stepping away from that will introduce a bit of uncertainty into my life. Luckily, I’m not actually leaving the building, and I’ll get to continue to work with all of the same incredible people who make this magazine (and everything else we do here) happen on a daily basis. I have no doubt the magazine will be in good hands, because one of those people is Jessica Knapp, and she will now bring her expertise and knowledge to these pages in her own way, and that is exciting.

Their paths are varied and provide insight into both the satisfaction and stress of making a living in clay. —Sherman Hall, Editor.
