Welcome to the January/February issue of Ceramic Review. In this issue we consider the life and work of David and Margaret Frith: two people who have been dedicated to ceramics and the potting community for over 50 years. Awarding achievement continued with the Woman’s Hour Craft Prize, for which three ceramists – Neil Brownsword, Alison Britton and Phoebe Cummings – were shortlisted within a group of 12 talented craftspeople. Congratulations to clay artist Phoebe Cummings, who deservedly won the inaugural prize. Exploring new approaches to craft, Emma Crichton-Miller met artist Clare Twomey at Tate Modern during her project FACTORY, which brought an industrial ceramics production line into the gallery. Turning Earth founder Tallie Maughan advocates the importance of open access studios in a changing educational landscape, while we spotlight sculptures drawing on native flora by Australian emerging maker Alice Couttoupes. We also consider a welcome commercial shift, as department stores increasingly begin to stock studio pottery; we hear how three ceramists now selling on the high street made the leap. Elsewhere, scientist-turned-potter Linda Bloomfield explores the colourful possibilities of rutile in glazes; we discover techniques for swirling patterns through clay; and Katherina Klug demonstrates how she creates her wheel-thrown porcelain vessels decorated with wax-resist pastels.
