OK, I have begun taking a closer look at the magazine. there are several
articles on selling your work. Also setting up a website as well as
"changing lives with art, Barbara brown Ambassador of Clay,
There are the usual advertisers, Skutt, North Star, Laguna, Annie's Mud
Pie shop, L and L and some more oriented towards sculpture
like sculptor.org and metal patinas.
I was disappointed in the original condition of the magazine when it
arrived but that is not the publisher's fault. As mel says, Montana is a
long way off from most places.

My magazine came in perfect condition. And yes, it was difficult to find the
subscription info since there was no card attached. I hope this magazine
will be available in bookstores for those, including myself, to check out
the magazine for a few issues before committing to a subscription.
I like the clay/business topics...but feel there should be one technique
article written by a featured potter as well to round out the magazine. On
page 46 is a small box describing the future topics. I look forward to
interviews with sculptors and potters.
As a former art director to numerous publications I checked out this
magazine. It is designed nicely. The cost of starting a magazine is pretty
high. Perhaps when they get more subscriptions/advertisement, they can
afford a heavier cover stock and perhaps to UV their cover.

You are so correct. I, too, live in Montana and my copy arrived looking like
it went through the mill. I am of the belief that they kick our mail to the
border and then hand carry it from there!
I like what I have read so far in the new publication. (or at least what I
could read through the rips and shreds)

WELCOME ABOARD! to my dear and good friend JoHanna ! So happy to see you
on CLAYART and you will find lots of wonderful people. A few have said
there magazine arrived shredded. Mine came in good and satisfactory
condition but perhaps the magazine will get onto better packing in time and
I would think postal regulations would be mandatory anyway. Couldn't
resist saying hi! here :)
