If you are astounded by the diverse range of items that can be made from clay, then surely one of the most astonishing results is when people make something on a monumental scale. In this issue, our cover star Nicholas Rena shares elements of his making process, including the fact that his large-scale pieces take two to three months of drying time before they even enter the kiln. We also profile the work of Finnish artist Kristina Riska, whose ceramic sculptures are massive in size, yet delicate in form and detail; Honor Freeman’s porcelain installations, one of which consists of 656 components; and Marijke Varrall-Jones from Maak Contemporary Ceramics talking about the increasing size of the ceramic auction market.
Don’t miss our review of Edmund de Waal’s installations in Venice; Australian ceramic artist Stephen Bowers sharing his fascination with blue and white shards of china; our Masterclass with Angela Mellor taking us step-by-step through her process for making bone china paperclay vessels, plus all the latest news and reviews.
