Founded in December 2010 by Vasi Hirdo, the Ceramics Now online platform evolved into a publication a year later. Since then we have created and published over 400 articles, including interviews, reviews, artist profiles, exhibitions and jobs announcements, contributing to the development of contemporary ceramics.
Over the past year, Ceramics Now has become the largest online art platform dedicated to contemporary ceramics, and recently we have opened promotion to artists and galleries worldwide by application. This effort resulted from the wish to offer artists a platform to express themselves, but also from the desire to establish an accessible resource for everyone wanting to research and be inspired by contemporary ceramics. Since the launch of the first issue, we have been cited as a reference by numerous universities and colleges in the United States and Europe. This step was incredibly important for us because it has proven the value of the project and has kept us working hard. Although the current issue was published later than originally planned, what is important is all the resources that we gathered through this process have already traveled the internet in the meantime, creating a powerful community around us.
Our main goal is to make contemporary ceramics a more visible art field and to support innovative ideas by bringing together artists from different communities and by facilitating idea exchange. We also do our best in introducing emerging artists to galleries, museums and international curators. The editorial line of the magazine focuses on personal approaches, with interviews and reviews.
We publish interviews, reviews and works (artists profiles) of new and world-renowned ceramic artists, and we provide information on contemporary ceramic art exhibitions and jobs.
