The international magazine of contemporary and historical ceramic art, Ceramic Review, was launched in 1970 by the Craft Potters Association. Since then it has explored and reported on the heritage and changes in trends of ceramics both in the UK and abroad.
Published bi-monthly, the magazine was relaunched two years ago with a crisp new feel to reflect the growing interest in the ceramics world. Combining authoritative features with lavishly illustrated top-quality photography, CR regularly includes in-depth profiles of the most exciting names at work today; features interviews with new names who are making their mark in the field of ceramics; hosts a practical how-to Masterclass series with top ceramists, both in print and online; includes insights from leading auction houses on the latest trends emerging in the world of collecting, alongside the latest news, reviews, exhibitions and events.
An invaluable resource for potters, ceramists, ceramic artists, collectors, enthusiasts and students, Ceramic Review has been inspiring the UK and international ceramics communities for almost 50 years.
Our cover this issue features a beautiful Sgraffito Bowl by the potter Lucie Rie. It is part of an exhibition at the Oxford Ceramics Gallery, which includes the work of ten female ceramists whose pioneering work pushed boundaries and changed our perceptions of ceramic art. This issue includes work by a number of artists who are pushing boundaries, including Paul Wearing who has been experimenting with glazes and textures to take his practice to the next level and Ikuko Iwamoto whose porcelain tableware features unexpected bite. You can also find out about Helen Beard’s unique decorating process in our latest Masterclass series; read about the inspiration behind Nigel Lamberts functional wares; and discover the metaphors behind kintsugi, the Japanese art of gold repair; plus, all the latest news and events from the world of ceramics.
