Focus: The Function Issue
In our November 2017 issue, journalist Mike Hall investigates our insatiable appetite for ceramics and asks Australia’s leading studio potters and restaurateurs for their no-nonsense advice. We’ll talk through our Cup Issues with Sophie Jane Moran, mould Happy Handles with Andrew Widdis, and learn the secrets of a perfectly pouring pot with award-winning ceramicist Vanessa Lucas. However, pots have wider meanings than their purely literal function, so, artist Andrew Nicholls explores the cultural function of 1950s ‘Fancy Ware’, curator Sophia Cai probes the emotionally charged ceramic groupings of Ulrica Trulsson, and artist Helle Jorgensen challenges our preoccupations with her stunning useless objects.
And there’s so much more besides. Bursting with inspiring stories, stunning imagery and technical tips, the November JAC has your summer reading sorted!
