Ceramics Monthly

Some dude showed up at the studio the other day with a milk crate full of pottery books and magazines, including a bunch of back issues of Ceramics Monthly. Y’know, the *good* back issues, from when they still published glaze recipes.[1]

After the last bout of intense production (especially the last few weeks), these seem like treasures. I want to make something new and stupidly fancy and intricate. Something I have never done before and never will again, over which I can lavish all the time and attention I want. And here, just at the right time, I have a stack of magazines, which are basically just pages and pages of wonderfully inspiring pottery porn.

  1. Hi!

    Totally unrelated to blogpost (though ooo! pottery magazines), but I’d been meaning to pop into the clay studio to visit/make sure you heard this, and I’m leaving tomorrow. So:

    This song is both wonderful and makes me think of your mugs (for obvious reasons!).


    It’s the one called ‘Robots’

    Happy summer potting!
