  • This is a terrific feature on a community of clay artists. I really liked the inclusion of all aspects, potters, galleries, curators, community centers, industry, small business. It is great. And It gave me terrific ideas of how to expand the curriculum to include how careers in clay can work for my high school pottery classes. I hope you feature other cities soon!

      Hi Erik! Just to be sure you know, we have two other episodes of Sights & Ceramics – Pittsburgh and Minneapolis. We are working on the fourth – Richmond, Virginia – which will be out before the 2020 NCECA conference (which will be held there this year). We are also working on an Italy episode! You can see all the episodes by clicking the Sights & Ceramics link in the navigation on the right side of every page. – eds.

    As a potter for over forty years, I still find it valuable to learn what other potters are doing. This series of potters’ communities is interesting. Let’s see more from the rest of the world. Japan, New Zealand, Britain, Europe, Canada, Mexico. The rest of the world is alive with hard working ceramic artists!

  • I would love to see Knoxville Tn. featured in one of these. We have a group of 40 women potters that are Terra Madre Women in Clay besides many others. Our town is growing and would make a great feature.
