Co-Editors Montessa Maack and Bridie Moran say: For this issue’s theme of POTTERS’ RECIPES we have considered recipes in various ways – in glaze formulation, in the contents which fill our handmade vessels, as a bringing of things together, be they people, ingredients, objects, or ideas. Join us in pouring over our materials, both old and new, with Ilona Topolcsanyi, Claire Ellis, Rob Linigen and others. Or dive into the making of meaning with Angie Talleyrand and Viv Cutbush, or the building of community with Yarrenyty Arltere artists and Kevin Boyd. We hope you enjoy the huge variety of recipe ideas in this issue as much as we have.
