CERAMICS AFRICA (article first published : 2002-05-6)

The launch of a quality magazine featuring the ceramics of African artists, to be called Ceramics Africa is being planned. The intention is to publish a high quality periodical, focused on historical, traditional and contemporary ceramics made in South Africa. The magazine will address the absence of a credible resource to showcase and promote the world, the rich tradition of African ceramics.

Ceramics Africa will perform on two levels, as a reputable reference source for ceramists, educators and collectors and as a marketing resource for Africa ceramics. A publication of this nature is extremely necessary and exciting, as there are limited resources of information on African ceramics.

At this stage the potential readership, both in Africa and internationally have been identified, and leading authorities are being approached for comments and suggestions regarding this initiative. The aim is to be as inclusive as possible to attract the readership and support that a publication of this nature will need, therefore welcome any comments on the project. Enquiries from all African countries are welcome for representation on the editorial advisory panel, or for comment.

Sponsorship from national and international cultural sources to support the launch of Ceramics Africa is being sought, until a national and international subscriber base is established.
