Editorial


Henry, Elaine O., Ceramics Art & Perception


For the past four years, Janet Mansfield and I have been talking about how we might make a successful transition in ownership and maintain the integrity of these amazing magazines. At the top of our list of priorities was the goal of keeping your confidence in the magazines and in the editorial staff. It felt most like an adoption. Janet has nurtured the world of ceramics and this magazine for 18 years and she has nurtured me in my attempt to follow in her footsteps. She produced 100 issues of the two publications over the course of those 18 years. She has become a household name in the world of ceramics because of her efforts and accomplishments and we owe her a debt of gratitude.

The readership of these publications is varied, including makers, collectors, appreciators, researchers and art historians, students, authors, interior designers and architects, critics and the family members of those whose work is included. I have been told many times that Ceramics: Art and Perception is the 'best in the world' and we intend to keep it that way.

September and October of this year have seen several important international ceramics events. The Ceramics Ireland International Festival was held on the 5th, 6th and 7th of September at the Pottery Skills and Design School in Kilkenny Ireland. And in China: Harmony and Advancement, the 43rd General Assembly of the International Academy of Ceramics was held in Xi'an with a day-long visit to the international ceramics museums in FuPing; and Shared Journeys, the first international symposium ever to be held by NCECA took place in Jingdezhen.
