Features in this Issue

Focus: Summer Workshops

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. —Sherman Hall, Editor.

On the cover: Joan Bruneau's flower bricks, to 8.5 in. (22 cm) in diameter, wheel-thrown and assembled Lantz earthenware, slip, polychrome glazes, 2014.
