Welcome to the second issue of Studio Talk! This compendium filled with articles by ceramic makers to watch and discover is brought to you by the staff of Ceramics Monthly and Pottery Making Illustrated. The following pages feature 7 artists who open up to readers about their inspiration, thoughts on ceramic trends, and their role in the current field. Several of these innovative thinkers also take us step by step through the techniques they use and the tools that help them realize their ideas. Others share a sneak peek into their studios and talk about their day-to-day practices. We hope you enjoy this deep dive into the creative minds and lives of fellow ceramic artists. The articles shared here provide a sampling of some of the great content in each issue.
You’ll also find a wealth of information on the magazines’ websites: www.ceramicsmonthly.org and www.potterymaking.org. Guests can access their choice of articles for free on a limited monthly basis.
