About Us

Elaine Olafson Henry, the editor of Ceramics: Art and Perception and Ceramics TECHNICAL has had more than 25 years of experience as a ceramics artist, lecturer and writer. She conducts workshops on creativity, motivation and personal aesthetics. She earned her Master of Fine Arts Degree from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and served as the President of the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) from 2004–2006. She is an elected member of the International Academy of Ceramics and her work is represented in international collections and publications.

The journal Ceramics: Art and Perception was established in 1990 by Janet Mansfield (1934–2013) in Sydney, Australia and in 1995, a companion journal, Ceramics TECHNICAL was launched.

Published quarterly, through Ceramics: Art and Perception we aim to set the international standard as a high quality journal dedicated to ceramic art. With a total of 120 pages, it contains approximately 23–28 reviews, substantial articles and regular features on a broad range of ceramics related subjects with excellent colour photographs throughout. More than 12,000 copies are distributed worldwide each quarter.

Published biannually, through Ceramics TECHNICAL, articles are focussed on technical issues in the field of ceramic art including research, culture and strategy.

With these journals, we strive to provide serious and thought-provoking forums at the highest standard for international ceramics artists, curators, writers, collectors, teachers and students.
