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.
Inspired by architecture and the Italian artist Piranesi, our cover star this issue is Jo Taylor, who shares her process and techniques in our latest Masterclass series, a video of which you can also find on our YouTube.com channel. We profile three diverse artists: Tina Vlassopulos, who has been making conceptual ceramics for over 40 years; William Plumptre, who was trained by a Japanese master potter; and Ranti Bam, whose sculptural vessels push terracotta to its limits. We also feature the latest project by Bisila Noha, which combines clay from her father’s village in Africa with white porcelain and stoneware; how the Stratford Art Gallery in Gateshead is coping with the impact of being closed due to the coronavirus; a Tenmoku glaze recipe from the Leach Pottery, plus all the latest news and events from the world of ceramics.
