Editor Vicki Grima says: This amazing bumper issue is all about collecting: old (and new) ceramic objects, the raw stuff straight from the ground, as well as how individuals and institutions build their amazing collections. We dip into sink sludge, find out about the venting of kilns and Anne Mossman shares her knowledge about how to prepare for a solo show in a regional gallery. All corners of the country are covered from the Indian Ocean Craft Triennial in Perth to ceramic jewellery in southern Tasmania. And a special treat ? we step inside The Powerhouse Museum for a look at CLAY DYNASTY, a new exhibition of their 50-year ceramics collection, now on.
