International Ceramics Week?

28 March 2012 - 08:34 AM


I am a potter working in the UK. I am interested in the decline of ceramics over recent years. You only have to look on Google trends to see that it has been on the steady decline for years.

In the UK an event started last year 'National Ceramics Week". I have written about this in a bit more detail in my blog. Is there anything simular in the US? The way it works here is there is a central site/organisation and people can register their events, no matter how small. There is promotional materia to download. It started last year. Only 200 potters took part.

I am trying to spread the word, there seem to be people or power and influence on this site. Is this something that could be developed in the US, or is it something you guys already do??

Thank you

Anne Castano

My name is Anne Castano I am new to Ceramic Arts Daily and though I would share a link to my blog where I am kicking up a stink and trying to generate debate about contemporary ceramics. My latest post raises some points regarding the role of the ceramic artist/ceramist/potter/maker in contemporary society from a British view point. I know that the American market is different and would be interested to hear any views on the influence Leach has hade on ceramics both in the UK and abroad.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post.
