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.
First published in February 1970, this issue of Ceramic Review is the first of our 50th anniversary and to celebrate we've updated our cover with a new look and logo. Our cover star is Ingrid Murphy, whose profile discovers more about her work, which has taken clay beyond pots, tableware, craft and art and into a digital realm of exploration.
Also profiled this issue is slip-cast functional maker Sue Pryke, who shares her career path from working at Wedgwood as a junior designer to becoming the latest judge on the TV programme The Great Pottery Throw Down; you will also find the results of the sale of the Peter Dingley Collection at auction; an insight into the growing trend of using ceramics in architecture; a step-by-step Masterclass with Adam Buick who shares how he throws and joins one of his Moon Jars, plus all the latest news and events from the world of ceramics.
