Ceramic Review issue 293 September/October 2018
It has been our privilege to spend time with award-winning Scottish potter Jennifer Lee in her studio in south London for this issue. With pots held in over 40 public collections worldwide, Lee’s work inspires a reverence rarely seen for a living maker. Tony Laverick picks up on the theme of the potter’s life in his feature, describing his life as a potter and the trials, tribulations and triumphs of making, exhibiting and selling your work in an ever-changing marketplace. Speaking of the market, we are lucky to have BBC Antiques Roadshow expert Will Farmer with us this issue for our ‘Auction Eye’ column, to discuss what’s hot and what’s not in the world of pots – a must-read for collectors. We couldn’t let this year pass without celebrating the 60th anniversary of our parent organisation, the Craft Potters Association. Set up as a non-profit provident society in 1958 by a group of potters wishing to create an environment where they could support one another, today it still stands by this collective spirit to champion the best of British studio ceramics. You can find out more about the Association inside. Here’s to the next 60 years!
