We’re already looking forward to summer here in the Ceramic Review office. Not just because we love blue skies and sunshine, but because we’ve been inspired by the range of amazing ceramic courses that are on offer in the UK, France and Italy over the summer months. Whether you’re an absolute beginner, want to develop your skills, or simply learn something new working with a different material, we explore courses to suit everyone. The warmer weather and changing light of spring lifts everyone’s spirits after the dark winter months; our cover star Justine Allison certainly channels the light to great effect in her paper-thin porcelain vessels. Inspired by urban architecture and the way sunlight bounces between groups of tall buildings, her delicate vases and bottles create a fascinating interplay of light and shade. The shifting light also has an influence on potter Stephen Parry’s work, whose location in Norfolk is clearly reflected in his pots. As André Hess explains, Stephen’s work has an ‘expansive, East Anglian, big-sky quality’ to it that, he says, is ‘discernible nowhere else in British studio pottery.’ If the warmer spring weather doesn’t inspire you, the newly reopened Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge will. It comprises the collection of Jim Ede and his wife Helen who amassed a remarkable array of art, ceramics and found items in their home, which they opened to the public. Have a wonderful spring – fingers crossed the sun shines!
