The Journal of Australian Ceramics (JAC) is Australia’s most widely read tri-annual contemporary ceramics magazine. Formerly known as Pottery in Australia (PIA), the magazine was first published in May 1962 (Vol 1, No 1).

The JAC is a 128–160 page, full colour, contemporary ceramics journal. It is a valuable resource for professional and amateur ceramicists, teachers and students at all levels, galleries, arts administrators, curators, buyers and collectors. It contains artist profiles, commentary and critical essays, exhibition and book reviews, information on tertiary ceramic education, workshop reports, technical advice, suppliers, new products, exhibition and gallery listings.

Editor Vicki Grima says: In this issue we look at ceramics from a local perspective: Claire Ellis talks about the radical reuse of plastic waste from her pottery as a new local material; Tess Kerbel delves deeply into Steve Williams′ practice in anticipation of his upcoming exhibition; Heather Law tells a story of Doomadgee Potters in remote North-West Queensland, Penny Smith visits Potters Croft – the home and pottery workshop of Tim and Tammy Holmes in Dunalley Tasmania, and Robyn Phelan shares with us her clay making ′residency′ in hotel quarantine.

JAC 60/2 also includes our annual National Education Pictorial Survey (2021). This bumper 160-page issue is full to the brim! As always, we squeeze in as much as we can with fascinating articles from every corner of the country.
