Exact Editions is delighted to announce that the full digital archive of The Journal of Australian Ceramics is now available for individual and institutional Subscriptions. In collaboration with The Australian Ceramics Association, the digital archive has now been completed, dating back to 1962 and including over 170 fully searchable back issues, with new issues published three times a year.

Previously known as Pottery in Australia (PIA) the title has had the privilege of Australia’s leading ceramicists gracing the covers and pages over six decades. Each issue features artist profiles, critical essays, exhibition and books reviews, workshop reports, technical advice, suppliers, new products, exhibition and gallery listings. The publication is celebrating 60 years of continuous print publication in 2022.

The Australian Ceramics Association fosters a lively, engaged ceramics community throughout Australia. As well as publishing The Journal of Australian Ceramics, the association organises nationwide open studio events, supports ceramic artists in their studio practice and advocates for excellence in ceramics education and training. They work to spread the excitement and passion of ceramics throughout Australia so that everyone has the opportunity to recognise, experience and value ceramics in their daily lives.

“Pottery in Australia was originally brought into existence because of a thirst for sharing experiences and knowledge, and potters seeking connection with others who shared their love of clay and the ceramic process. It is remarkable to see every single issue as a fully-searchable resource — the archive will be an invaluable resource for both professional and amateur ceramicists.”
