The versatility of clay is surely one of it's attractions – all you have to do is look at the ceramists we feature to see the numerous ways it enables people to express themselves. A number of our featured artists this issue, including Sam Bakewell, Tessa Eastman and our cover star Ian Godfrey, all look towards the escapist nature of ceramics as a key influence in their practice, creating innovative work that reflects their personal connection with the material. We hope you enjoy reading about their influences and inspiration.
