The power of craft and creativity to lift our spirits has been in the spotlight in recent times, with many people discovering the therapeutic qualities of making during the coronavirus lockdowns. The act of creation, clay and religion are fundamental to our cover star this issue, Theaster Gates, whose practice is based on his love of clay and belief in the spirituality of craft. Trained as an urban planner and potter, Gates has worked on urban transformation projects in his hometown of Chicago – creating spaces to allow others to make, study, work and perform, which is his religious calling. Of course, creativity features in every issue of Ceramic Review, and we’ve got plenty this time too, from our profiles with Gates, Gregory Tingay and Peter Pincus, through to our Emerging Maker Emma Bulley and our Masterclass with Tanya Gomez. Plus, don’t miss our feature on the history of the Oriental Ceramic Society, which is celebrating its centenary this year and our preview of Shoji Hamada: A Japanese Potter in Ditchling. Ceramic Review has a proud history of championing the power of clay, craft and creativity and agrees with Gates when he says: ‘craft is the new religion of contemporary art’.
