Welcome to this bumper issue of Ceramic Review. And what a landmark issue it is. Not many magazines can boast reaching 300 issues, especially one in such a niche market as ceramics, but here we are in the company of some of the longest-running magazines in history such as The Lady, Private Eye and even Vogue. I don’t suppose our cover stars, founding editors Emmanuel Cooper and Eileen Lewenstein considered reaching such a milestone when they were putting together the first issue almost 50 years ago.
Don’t miss our wonderful insight into that first issue with an extract from a new book Making Emmanuel Cooper, which features extracts from Emmanuel’s memoirs and diaries. This issue we also have an extended Masterclass with potter Jack Doherty, who kindly shares both the making and firing process behind his soda-fired porcelain vessels; in-depth profile features with ceramic artists John Maltby, Jacqueline Poncelet and Neil Brownsword, as well as an interview with Viscount Eccles who is kindly donating some of his ceramic collection in aid of the Craft Potters Charitable Trust.
I hope you enjoy issue 300 and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has enabled Ceramic Review to reach such a significant point in its history – we really couldn’t have done it without you.
