Latest issue

The resonance of the theme REMEDY & REPAIR with the times we are living in feels both urgent and complex. In clay there is immense strength and inherent fragility, and our creative histories, making traditions, and futures seem very much to call for remedy and repair. In this issue Lauren Kalman’s body of research leaves us both cradled and bruised, while Madeleine K. Snow dives into Kara Wood’s practice, which keeps the importance of protest front of mind. We see provenance examined through acute questions on collecting practices; community and culture combined in clay with Grace Dlabik; and satisfying technical articles on marbled pottery from Beste Ogan, and kiln construction from Suvira McDonald.
