Eastnor Pottery’s Co-Director Sarah Monk been featured in a lovely online magazine! It’s called Emerging Potters and contains 35 pages of ceramic artists, gallery news and book reviews.

Paul Bailey, the editor asked her six questions: how she got into ceramics, a bit about Eastnor Pottery, her influences, where she sells, how does she use social media and her observations of how pottery has changed in the last 5 years. Paul has put her answers into a beautifully written three page article.

The feature can be found in the April to June copy, Issue 18. The magazine is produced quarterly on the ISSUU platform. Paul is very happy to send a copy if you email: paulbailey123@googlemail.com
