Features in this Issue
Welcome to the third 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 seven artists who open up to readers about their inspirations, thoughts on ceramic trends, and their roles 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.
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. For more tips and techniques, check out hundreds of free posts and scores of how-to videos on the Ceramic Arts Network. —Holly Goring, Editor, Pottery Making Illustrated, and Katie Reaver, Interim Editor, Ceramic Monthly.
