The Journal of Australian Ceramics (JAC) is a valuable resource for professional and amateur ceramicists, teachers and students at all levels, galleries, arts administrators, curators, buyers and collectors.

The JAC is published three times per year – 1 April, 17 July and 20 November – and is available in both print and digital formats. Our 160 pages of full-colour content features profiles on ceramicists, potters and makers; reviews of ceramic exhibitions and/or books; previews of upcoming events; critical reports and/or commentaries; research papers; and community reports. In each issue we choose a focus area as a way to source different and new stories – stories that highlight aspects of our community and topics of current conversation.

We aim to inspire, educate, address current issues, expose readers to new points of view and help readers to feel connected to the broader ceramics community.

Formerly known as Pottery in Australia (PIA), the magazine was first published in May 1962 (Vol 1, No 1). In 2022, The JAC celebrated its 60th anniversary.
