FOCUS: MAKING & SELLING CONTRIBUTION: DAMON MOON MECHELLE BOUNPRASEUTH WOODFIRING IN 2022 NAKED RAKU Editor Vicki Grima says: In our third and final issue for 2022, it’s all about MAKING & SELLING. Starting with Damon Moon looking at the place of Gwyn Hanssen Pigott in Australian ceramics, we move on to a recent survey of woodfiring, then on to cover the production side of things with Studio Enti, and a look back to the ceramic pipes of colonial Sydney. We cover the amazing new Ace Hotel in Sydney which is full of ceramics, Mechelle Bounpraseuth who uses humour, scale and brilliant technical skill in her recent exhibition work, a report from Dianne Peach, after her judging of the North QLD ceramic awards, ceramic coins, porcelain moon jars, naked raku and how to get the most out of your kiln elements. There is surely something for everyone!
