With a rich mix of reviews, short essays, interviews, and technical articles, Ceramics New Zealand forms a platform for in-depth discussion on ceramic practice in New Zealand.
Stunning full-colour images and accessible content mean this bi-annual magazine can be enjoyed by makers, educators, collectors, and all ceramics enthusiasts.
On holiday recently, we searched out some interesting potty places to visit. The village of St Jean-la Poterie, in Brittany, has a 1500-year tradition of pottery and clay work. Their two-day “Fête des Lises” was held in a large park and was a festival more like a mini convention than a market.
For the last two months my partner Darby and I have been volunteers at Pilliga Pottery and Barkala Farmstay, located five hours drive north-west of Sydney. Pilliga Pottery is named after the forest park that surrounds us.
Ben Carter was recently brought to New Zealand by the Ceramics Association of New Zealand. While he was here, he took various workshops around the country and interviewed various potters. These are the podcasts of those interviews.
