Journal of Australian Ceramics

When I was in Sydney a few weeks ago I popped in to the offices of The Journal of Australian Ceramics. I can really recommend this magazine to all ceramicists ( not just Australians!) Vicki Grima, the editor, themes every issue and sources articles from the cream of Australian craft writers and working artists.

The latest issue is based around the theme of education and includes articles on-

"The Changing Face of Ceramics" how artists are interfacing with technology and mass production by Janet de Boos.

Woodfiring in an environmentally sustainable way by Ray Cavill,

and a lovely philosophical article on teapots by Phil Elson complete with detailed working photos of the creation of his classic, refined teapots.

Check it out online....
