New York Times: handmade ceramics are white hot


In case you missed it: the New York Times says handcrafted ceramics are "white hot." Excerpt:

"Robert Sullivan, the contributing editor at Vogue who wrote the magazine’s ceramics article, said that ceramics are popular now because they are 'among the most obviously and literally handmade things.'

"'It’s an antidote to all the electronics,' he added.

"Julie Carlson, editor in chief of the design website Remodelista, has chronicled the rise. 'It’s entwined with the farm-to-table movement,' she said. 'It’s this desire to know the origin of what’s in your kitchen.'

"'It’s hard to keep track of them,' she added of new ceramists. 'In the beginning, it seemed like there were just a few, but now there are more than we can cover, and more than we can invite to our markets.'"

The article is titled, "Why Handmade Ceramics Are White Hot." Read it here:
