  1. Hi all Had our gallery's Christmas bash recently and a debate broke out about our personal definitions of who we are and what we do....... some thought 'potter' and 'pottery' was outdated, some kind of 1970's 'hippy' brown 'mug and jug' concept others said 'ceramicist' sounded like some inflated, interllectual self-justifying 'label' for a craft already practiced for thousands of years others thought 'ceramics' allowed for broader interpretations than functional wares and ALL were horrified that handmade artisan work could get lumped into 'paint-a-plate/hobby ceramics'!! ............the impetus for today's question was one person's strong assertion that ....'in the US and UK theyre called ceramicists not potters!'..............really?? .......it does not seem the case as I read through CAD but maybe I can't read.........so I will ask the question.... How do you define yourself and what you do?....... potter/pottery, ceramics/ceramicist....or some hybrid or variation? Look forward to the answers....... Have a great Christmas/New Year holiday!! ......btw, 35C here today...no snow Irene
