FOCUS: CONTEMPORARY PRACTICE
Editor Vicki Grima says: “The April issue of The Journal of Australian Ceramics has a FOCUS ON CONTEMPORARY PRACTICE with featured artists Claudia Terstappen, Pilar Rojas, Samuel Leighton-Dore, Sadhana Peterson, Steve Harrison and many more. We look at kilns – the ins and outs of firing, alternative methods using solar power and thoughts on sustainable practice. A 32-page Ceramix catalogue is also part of this bumper 160-page issue. As always, we will squeeze in as much as we can about the diversity of Australian ceramics.”
