While compiling this issue we were reminded about the importance of encouraging the next generation of makers in order to ensure the future of studio pottery and ceramic art in this country. Aspiring artists need guidance and support from the ceramic community in order to achieve their full potential, whether that is through the more traditional route of formal education, via local open-access studios, established makers opening their studios to share their knowledge and experience, or organisations such as the Craft Potters Association that provide makers with a shared platform to advocate their cause. So to all of you who give your time and share your expertise, thank you, you are helping to secure the future of making ceramics for generations to come.
