Or even a favorite ceramics/pottery magazine?

I think it depends on what your level is and what you want out of it.
PMI good for suggesting ideas and how-tos. The annual Guide is really
Clay Times-good info, shows, series writing by excellent people:
Monona Rossel on Health, Lana Wilson,David Hendley, Tony Clennel,
Marc Ward, Kelly(Primalmommy) and more Pete Pinnell. Polly Beach has
done an amazing job of bringing the magazine to the forefront.
Ceramics Monthly, 50+ years of covering the field in US and abroad.
Sherman Hall has raised the bar with the slick and gorgeous new
format. Authors from all over the map (globe)
Ceramic Arts and Perception -excellent state of the Arts
international in scope Janet Manifield, editor and famous Salt Glaze
lady from Australia
Ceramics Technical- more technical orientation
Ceramica Technica from Greece.. and there may be a counter part here
but I have lost touch. Great International magazine with issues
available in various languages (I think).
Studio Potter- 35 years and going strong. I think they may have
covered all the states' potters. In olden days they profiled 10 -12
potters from each state/per issue plus some other articles. One issue
dealt with alternative fuels , another with copper reds. The last
issue was a series of articles by well-established ceramic artists on
COLOR that was great! Joe Molinaro is now the edito, stepping in for
gerry Williams one of the founders in 1972.. Joe is the co-founder of
CLAYART along with Richard Burkett way back when.. 1994?. Joe is also
the on-site liason for NCECA in Louisville. I think the format is
changing for Studio Potter. I really enjoyed the last issue. I have
always enjoyed SP but this one was really special.
So choosing a magazine really depends on what you want to get out of
it. There is a great selection to choose from.
I didn't mention American Craft which is from the American Crafts
Council and covers wood, metal, glass, fiber and clay.

Log Book is pretty good. A tiny magagzine about woodfiring by woodfirers.
I just started putting out a large format postcard newsletter (USPS
prints it up and mails it for me. I provide the PDF file and address
list.) It is titled:
It is about Zen, Craft as Practice and Beauty.
One reason for putting it out was to let folks back home
know I was going to be working part of the year in Mpls.

looked--Dec 2006 issue--has something changed?
