ABOUT THE STUDIO POTTER
Published twice a year, THE STUDIO POTTER has been the independent voice of
since 1972. Based in first-person narrative and studio practice, the journa=
has fostered thoughtful writing on such themes as the environment,
criticism, technology, ceramic history, and education. Athough SP has
published scholarly articles, it is aimed at the curious general reader
an academic audience.
Each issue of THE STUDIO POTTER is 96 pages, of which approximately 90
contain text and images pertaining to the theme. Typically there are 20=3D9=
articles of varying lengths in each issue. The
journal has always been characterized by a lively mix of written and visual
content; the design of each issue is unique and reflects the theme.
THE STUDIO POTTER is published in January and July. Upcoming themes are
published in the journal and on the SP website at least six months in
advance. The guest editor will consult with editor Mary Barringer on the
winter/spring 2012 issue during the fall of 2011 to get a sense of the
process and sequence of tasks, then will begin work on Volume 40, Number 2
in January 2012.
