My Article in The Journal of Australian Ceramics
By Jackie Masters, Dec 10 2018 07:00AM
I am so very thrilled to have an article published in the November edition of The Journal of Australian Ceramics. Vicki Grima OAM, the Editor of the Magazine contacted me a few months ago with regards to running an article on me and my exploration of volcanic glazes. Putting it all together was quite a journey and one that sent me down memory lane. Looking back over my years with clay made me realise just how far I have come and how hard I have worked to get to where I am today. My most recent work, which features in the magazine, is a culmination of years of refining my throwing skills and my perseverance with glaze development and testing, all of which I love immensely. Vicki Grima came over to Perth to launch this latest edition (one of only 3 editions per year!) and to meet the amazing potters that are busy creating in this wonderful part of Australia.
The launch took place Perth Studio Potters (which is also where I teach) and there were over 70 potters and lovers of clay in attendance. My pottery journey is now in print (over 6 pages!) in this magnificent magazine. This, November edition, is all about 'Exploring Surface' so mine is just one of many incredible articles, from a plethora of very interesting Australian artists each of which talks about how they approach the clay surface. This is a
world class magazine, well worth a look, see www.australianceramics.com for more information.
