Editor Vicki Grima says: “In the July issue of The Journal of Australian Ceramics, issue 592, we look at CERAMICS KNOWLEDGE – how we acquire it, the places we go to seek it out, and the people who share it with others. We cover the recent collaboration between potter Ben Richardson and architect John Wardle on Bruny Island, and the building of a kiln in this unique landscape. There are articles on Hiroe Swen and a look at silicosis. We also hear from Robyn Phelan, Hester Heuff, and Madeleine Thornton-Smith. As always in our mid-year issue, our Annual Education Survey brings diversity and colour to our pages, showing work by those who have been building their knowledge over the last year or two in tertiary institutions around Australia. As always, we will squeeze in as much as we can about the diversity of Australian ceramics.”
